A fairly common species throughout Belgium, especially in the northern part. Occurs sometimes as a pest in orchards.
The larva of the second brood hibernates. Pupation in the larval habitation or between freshly spun leaves.
The adults are active at dusk and later come to light.
The adults fly in two generation per year which may sometimes overlap: from the end ofMay till the beginning of July, and from August till mid September.
