Khorassania compositella (Treitschke, 1835)

A very local species in Belgium, only found in the limestone area of the province of Namur.

The larva lives on Artemisia campestris. It hibernates from September till April.

The adults fly in two generations a year: in April-May and in July-August. They are active at dusk and later come to light or sugar.
