A fairly common species throughout Belgium.
It hibernates as a small larva and pupates in a cocoon.
The adults fly from early June till the end of August in one generation a year. In favourable years a partial second generation occurs during September-October. They come to light.
The larva lives on: Rubus spp., Fragaria vesca and Vaccinium.
