A very rare and local species in Belgium. Hitherto only known from the southern provinces.
The species hibernates as a larva. The adults come to light.
The adults fly in one generation a year: onwards from mid May towards late June.
The larva lives in the roots and stems of Senecio jacobaea, S. paludosus, Picris hieracioides and Jacobaea erucifolia.
