A fairly common species throughout Belgium.
The adults fly in one, possibly a partial second generation a year from late April till July. They are active from dusk onwards and are attracted to light.
The larva lives on various species of deciduous trees and shrubs but especially on Crataegus and Prunus spinosa. Hibernates as a pupa underground or among plant debris.
