This rare species was discovered for the first time in Belgium during 2005 in two provinces. First in the Stamprooiersbroek at Kinrooi in LI were it was caught on 3 different dates, and 2 days later after the first record at Kontich in AN. Hitherto a very rare and local species.
The larva feeds on the leaves of the food plant.
Later on it pupates under the bark.
The adults come to light.
The adults fly from June till mid September, but most specimens have been observed in August.
