of the Lepidoptera of Belgium

Dichrorampha sedatana Busck, 1906

A locally common species in Belgium, probably overlooked in many localities.

The larva lives in the roots and the rootstock of Tanacetum vulgare. It hibernates and pupates in the larval habitation during spring.

The adults have been observed from June till July. They are active during sunny days in the afternoon and at dusk. Later they come sparsely to light.
