A very rare moorland species in Belgium, now possibly extinct. Used to be seen in very small numbers in the Kempen and Ardennes area.
The species hibernates as a larva.
The adults visit flowers and come to light and sugar.
The adults are on the wing in one generation from mid-July till September, with a peak in August.
The larva lives presumably on a variety of herbaceous plants and shrubs like Vaccinium or Calluna vulgaris, and also on Salix or Betula.
