A common species throughout Belgium.
The adults fly in two generations a year and can be found the whole year round. They come to sugar and less to light.
The larva lives on Salix and Populus. Pupates in a cocoon spun between two leaves, often near the end of a twig. Hibernates as an adult, in a sheltered location such as cellars, caves etc. (see More pictures )
