A very rare species in Belgium with most observations in the southeastern part of the country.
The adults fly from June till August. The moths are active during the day and later frequently come to light.
The larva lives in a silken tube below ground level on several herbaceous plants, grasses and mosses. Pupation in a tough silken cocoon in the larval habitation.
