A very common species throughout Belgium.
The adults fly from mid June till the end of September, in favourable conditions sometimes till early November. One specimen was caught as early as 13 May. They are active at dusk and later come to light and sugar.
The larvae live mainly on Urtica dioica, but also on Chenopodium, Atriplex, Filipendula ulmaria or Humulus, in a leaf rolled round the midrib. They hibernate. Pupation in a rolled leaf.
