A rare and local species in Belgium, mainly known from the southern part.
The adults fly in one generation a year; from mid June towards end of August. They are active from dusk onwards and later come to light and sugar.
The larva lives on a variety of trees and shrubs such as Quercus, Crataegus and Corylus. It feeds mainly on fallen leaves. It hibernates as a larva between spun leaves on the ground where it later pupates in a cocoon.
