A very rare species in Belgium, thinly distributed and nowadays only recorded in LG and LX. Very recently (2019) a specimen was trapped in AN, very close to the Dutch border. This record was the first for Flanders after more than 20 years of absence.
Hibernates as a pupa in a cocoon in the sand. The adults come to light and sugar.
The adults fly in one generation a year: from mid March till mid May.
The larva lives on different species of trees and herbaceous plants like Salix, Betula, Senecio and Artemisia vulgaris.
