A fairly common species in Belgium, most observations from the northern part.
Pupates in a cocoon under a leaf of the food plant. The adult hibernates in sheltered places like cellars, caves, hollow trees and among Hedera.
The adults fly from early July till October, and after hibernation reappear during spring, onwards from March till mid June. They come to light and sugar.
The larva lives on Humulus lupulus.
