A fairly common and widespread, but declining species throughout Belgium.
They hibernate as young larva and pupates in a loose transparent cocoon.
The adults come to light.
The adults fly in one generation a year: from May till August.
The larvae live on a variety of scrubs and trees like: Crataegus, Corylus, Ligustrum, Prunus spinosa, Ribes spp. etc...
