A common species throughout Belgium.
The adults fly in two generations a year; from mid April till late August. They are active from dusk onwards and later come to light.
The larva lives on various deciduous trees like Salix, Alnus glutinosa, Prunus spinosa and Hippophae rhamnoides. Hibernates as pupa in a cocoon underground.
