A common species throughout Belgium.
The species hibernates as a larva and pupates in a loose cocoon underground.
The adults come to light and sugar.
The adults fly in two, sometimes three, generations a year from mid-April till late November.
When conditions are mild sometimes till late December.
The larva lives on different species of herbaceous plants, preferably on Urtica.
