A fairly common species throughout Belgium.
The larva lives in leaves spun together and pupates in an underground cocoon. Hibernates as an egg laid on the foodplant. The adults come to light and sugar.
The adults fly in one generation a year: from mid June till end of August.
The larva lives on Populus tremula and other Populus spp.
