A very common species throughout Belgium.
The adults fly in two, or even three hard to distinguish generations a year from April till October. They come to light.
The larva lives on different species of deciduous trees and shrubs, like Crataegus and Prunus spinosa. Hibernates as a half-grown larva on the foodplant or as a pupa in a cocoon.
