A fairly common species throughout Belgium, formerly only known from the northern part, but since 1980 spread all over the country.
The adults fly in one or two generations a year; from mid June till mid October. The second generation is partial and is not often recorded. They come to light.
The larva lives on lichens growing on bushes and trees. Hibernates as a larva.
