A fairly common species, well distributed throughout Belgium.
The adults fly in two generations; in June and again in August. The moths are active in the evening. They come to light.
The larva lives on the flowers and seedheads of various Compositae like Crepis, Carduus, Hieracium, Senecio and Solidago. It hibernates spun up amongst debris.
