New to Belgium in 2016 in WV.
Wingspan 17–22 mm. A rather small, narrow-winged species. Forewing brown-tinted with acute apex and oblique termen.
The adults fly usually late from July through to early November. A bivoltine cycle is suggested by the data, with a small proportion of the autumn brood overwintering and re-appearing during the spring (May-June).
The larva feed on various mosses on walls and in sand dunes.
Prefers coastal habitats but it can be found locally inland.
