A very rare and local species in Belgium.
The adults fly in two generations a year; during May and June and again onwards from mid July till September. They are active in sunshine and at night and come rarely to light.
The pale yellow larva feeds in fruits of Rosa canina and also in cultivated roses, rarely in fruits of Sorbus aucuparia. Hibernation in cocoon just below the surface and pupation next spring.
