Host plants:
The larvae are polyphagous. Young larvae feed on grasses, older ones also on herbs and low-growing bushes.

Habitat:
Eugnorisma glareosa inhabits nutrient-poor grasslands, sandy grasslands, dry embankments, rocky areas, woodland margins, Calluna heathland and similar sites.

Life cycle:
The moths occur between late August and mid-October. The larvae hibernate very small. They can be shaken out of grass tussocks and moss in spring (March). They are active during the night and mature in late April and in May.

Remarks:
Eugnorisma glareosa shows an expansive Atlanto-Mediterranean distribution pattern. It occurs from Morocco and SW-Europe across parts of central Europe to S-Sweden, Poland and Estonia. Eugnorisma glareosa benefits from global warming in central Europe.
