A not so common and local species in Belgium, mainly known from the Kempen where it's common.
Hibernates as a pupa. The adults are active from dusk and later come to light.
The adults fly in two, sometimes three generations a year, sometimes from early February, but usual from early March till end August, occasionally till November.
The larva lives on Calluna vulgaris. In literature, this species is known to be monophagous on Calluna, but there has been recent sightings of eating larvae on Salix cinerea.
