A rather common species throughout Belgium, but more frequently observed in the south of the country.
They hibernates as a pupa underground or among plant debris.
The moths are active during daytime.
The adults fly in one generation a year: from late April till late June. Rarely a partial second generation occurs till early August.
The larva feeds on various species of low plants like Teucrium scorodonia.
