An common but widespread species throughout Belgium. One of the commonest members of the genus.
Distribution after 2004 is based only on specimens examined for genitalia.
The adults fly from April till September. They are active at night and come to light. Unlike most of the genus Ephestia, this species occurs outdoors and it's not a pest of dried foods in warehouses.
