A very rare and widespread species in Belgium.
The adults fly in one generation a year; from early May till late August, but usually during June and July. They are active from dusk onwards and later come to light.
The larva lives on the flowers and seeds of different herbaceous plants, like Knautia arvensis , Galium molugo, Hypericum perforatum or Crepis spp. Hibernates as pupa among plant debris.
