A very rare immigrant species throughout Belgium, not present every year.
A very rare immigrant species throughout Belgium, observed in almost all provinces.
The adults have been recorded from June towards December, these moths are usually from migrants of the second and third generation. They fly from dusk onwards and visit flowers and later come to light.
The larva lives on Epilobium angustifolium, Galium, Parthenocissus, Vitis vinifera and Fuchsia. So far known it's unable to overwinter in our country due to the harsh winter conditions. Pupates in a loose cocoon on or under the ground.
