A not so common species throughout Belgium, especially in the Kempen and the southern part.
The adults fly from mid May towards late August in one generation a year. They are active from dusk onwards and later come to light and sugar.
The larva lives on Vaccinium myrtillus. Hibernates usually as a pupa in a cocoon among plant debris or just under the ground but sometimes the larva hibernates in the cocoon and pupation take place in spring.
