A very common species throughout Belgium.
Hibernates as a pupa underground. The adults come to light and sugar.
The adults fly in two, sometimes three generations a year: from mid April towards mid October.
The larva lives mainly on Atriplex and Chenopodium, but also on other herbaceous plants, shrubs and trees like Urtica, Humulus, Hypericum perforatum, Corylus and Salix. It can sometimes be a pest on tomato.
