A very rare and local species in Belgium, only known from the southern part.
The adults fly in one generation a year; from mid June towards early September with a peak around end of July/early August. They are active from dusk onwards and later come to light.
The monophagous larva lives on the leaves and seeds of Impatiens noli-tangere. It rests under a leaf by day and become active during night. Hibernates as pupa in an earthen cocoon on surface.
