Host plants:
The larvae usually feed on Verbascum species of the subgenus Celsia, especially Verbascum phoeniceum. In The S-Greek Peloponnese I recorded it on Verbascum daenzeri. More rarely also Scrophularia sp. is reported.

Habitat:
Cucullia gozmanyi most often inhabits dry and warm steppe complexes with various proportion of open woodland and scrub.

Life cycle:
The pupa hibernates when the moth has already partly developed. Flight time is between mid-March and mid-May. The larvae are most often found from late April to early or mid-June. They feed openly on the plants and prefer flowers and fruits. Usually only a single larva is found per plant.

Endangerment factors:
Cucullia gozmanyi has probably already been pushed back heavily by the loss of dry steppe complexes at least at the periphery of its range (e.g. E-Austria).

Remarks:
Cucullia gozmanyi occurs from NE-Italy, SE-Czech Republic and E-Austria across SE-Europe to Greece, Bulgaria and S-Russia. It is expected to occur also in parts of Asia (e.g. Asia Minor).
