First observation of this species in Belgium was in October 2007 in the province of Namur.
larva lives on Artemisia absinthium and Tanacetum vulgare. In the early stage it lives in a 'Phyllonorycter' type mine and later on between spun leaves.
adults fly in two generations a year; from April till June and again from July till October. They come to light.
