A rather common species throughout Belgium.
The adults fly usually in one generation a year; from late May till late July. When conditions are favourable a rare and small partial second generation occurs during late August and mid September. They become active from dusk onwards and later come to light and sugar.
The larva lives on dead leaves. The species seems to be bound to Rubus and are very sedentary. Hibernates as a nearly fully grown larva in leaf litter below the food plant and pupates among plant debris.
