A fairly common species throughout Belgium, but can be locally fairly common, especially in the Kempen region.
The larvae hibernate usually as an egg and possibly sometimes as a pupa.
They pupate just beneath the ground.
The males fly over the food plant by day: from just before noon until late afternoon and later come to light.
The adults fly in one generation a year: from late May till late June.
The larva lives on: Vaccinium, Salix and Populus tremula.
