A very rare and local species in Belgium, only known from a few observations in NA. This species was new for our country in 2012.
Hibernation as a pupa in a flimsy cocoon in the ground.
The adults fly in one generation a year, onwards from mid May towards mid July.
Larva rather oligophagous and found on the flowers and the seeds of mainly Thymus serpyllum, Thymus vulgaris, Thymus praecox, but also on Solidago, Pastinaca sativa, Hypericum perforatum, Origanum vulgare etc.
