The young larva lives on the terminal shoots or between spun leaves on the host plant. It hibernates full-fed in a cocoon spun in a dead leaf or on the ground, and it pupates in this cocoon.
The adults are mainly active in the early morning and again in the late afternoon and later they readily come to light.
