A common species throughout Belgium.
The adults have been observed from the end of May till mid September. They are active at dusk and later come to light.
The young larva hibernates in a silk hibernaculum near the base of a stem of Rubus spp. In spring it feeds in a terminal shoot of Rubus spun into a large bunch. Pupation in the larval feeding place, in a spun leaf or in moss.
