A very local and very rare species in Belgium, thus far only known from the Kempen.
Wingspan 12–14 mm.
Diagnostic features for the genus Buckleria: forewing cleft from middle, both lobes with an acute apex and some isolated dark scales (but not in the shape of a scale-tooth) at the dorsum of the third lobe on the hindwing.
The eggs are oviposited on the underside of the leaves. The larva feeds on the leaves and petioles and it pupates under the leaf or on the herbs in the vicinity.
The larvae of the second generation hibernate.
The adults are mainly active in the evening and just after dark.
Two generations a year: in May–June, and again in July–August, with the top in August.
Monophagous on Drosera rotundifolia.
Moorlands, peat bogs.
