This very rare species is not seen in Belgium for quite some time, probably extinct.
Wingspan c. 12-16 mm. The adult males are brownish-grey with several darker spots, and females are similar, though paler. Both sexes often show a sheen to the forewings.
The early stages are poorly documented but the species occurs in dry grassy habitats and is suspected to feed on grasses or moss.
Grasses or mosses.
