A rather common species in Belgium.
The adults fly in one generation a year; from late April till end July. Occasionally a sporadic partial second generation occurs in September. They come to light.
The larva lives preferably on Crataegus and Prunus spinosa. Sometimes, it can be found on other trees as well. Hibernates as a pupa among plant debris.
