Mentioned for the first time in Belgium in 2018 from a specimen identified by J.-L. Renneson in an old collection (now deposited in RBINS), Torgny (LX), leg. M. Fontaine. Perhaps other specimens of this species are hidden in series of Zygaena purpuralis because the external morphology of both species is much alike.
Monophagous on Pimpinella saxifraga.
Calcareous grasslands, nutrient-poor meadows or open pine forests in limestone areas.
