It is found along the southern coasts of the Mediterranean Sea, but mainly in Syria, Arabia, Africa, Mauritius and Réunion. The length of the forewings is 14–15 mm. Adults are on wing from September to October. In North Africa Leersia oryzoides and Sorghum halepense have been recorded as food plants for the larvae. In Mauritius, they feed on various grasses, such as Panicum. In South-Africa, larvae have been recorded on Ehrharta erecta, Oryza, Pennisetum and Zea mays.
