A rather common species throughout Belgium, especially in the northern part.
Hibernates as a small larva and pupates in a transparent white cocoon spun vertically between the leaves of stems of rushes.
The adults visit sometimes flowers during the day and later come to light.
The adults fly in two generations a year; from early May till mid October.
The larva lives on: Typha latifolia, Phragmites australis, Phalaris arundinacea, Iris pseudacorus, Alisma plantago-aquatica etc...
