A not so common species throughout Belgium, mainly observed in the Kempen, but also present elsewhere.
The larva lives in a loose spinning amongst the shoots and male blossoms of the food plant. It pupates in a flimsy cocoon in the larval habitation.
The adults are active from early dusk onwards and come to light.
The adult flies in June and July.
The larva lives on Pinus sylvestris and Pinus pinaster.
