The larva lives in a leaf of the food plant, spun into a pod. It hibernates full-fed in the larval feeding place.
Pupation in the pod where the larva overwintered or in leaf-litter.
The adults are active in early evening and later come to light.
The adults fly from mid-April till the end of July, occasionally later. Most observations during May.
