A very rare species in Belgium, but as with many Elachistidae probably underrecorded.
The adults fly in two generations a year; onwards from mid May towards early July and again in August.
The larva feeds on various Cyperaceae and Poaceae like Brachypodium, Carex, Calamagrostis, Sesleria, Deschampsia, etc... The larvae mine either upwards or downwards and the mine gradually widens with all frass deposited at the beginning of the gallery. Hibernates within the mine.
