Apart from a dubious observation in 2015 in NA, which is not accepted, this very rare and local species is discovered for the first time in 2020 in AN.
Wingspan 13–16 mm.
Dirty white colored with transverse reddish stripes on the segments, head yellow to pale brown, protharacic shield concolorous with head, dark edged.
The larvae live in spins in the inflorescence, stems and seeds of the host plant.
The adults fly in two generations a year: onwards from late May toward September.
Polyphagous on species of the umbelliferous family (Apiaceae) like Daucus carota, Ferula, Foeniculum, Heracleum, Laserpitium, Ligusticum etc...
