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