A rather common species throughout Belgium.
The adults fly in two, possibly three generations a year: from mid May till mid July and again from mid August till mid October. They come to light.
The larva lives on a variety of coniferous trees like: Pinus sylvestris and Picea abies. It hibernates as a small larva on the food plant and pupates among conifer needles or other plant debris on the ground.
