A very rare and local species in Belgium, hitherto mainly recorded from the southern part. Perhaps overlooked due to its resemblance to Celypha cespitana and Orthotaenia undulana.
The adults fly early June till August. They are active at dusk and come to light.
The larva lives on the flowers and terminal shoots of various herbaceous plants, like Filipendula ulmaria, Genista tinctoria, Hieracium, Lotus, Orchis and Plantago. Pupation in a flimsy cocoon in the larval habitation or amongst leaves of the foodplant.
