A fairly common species in Belgium, mainly known from the Kempen, Brabant and the south of Belgium.
The larva lives on the leaves of a great variety of deciduous trees. Hibernates as an egg, laid in small batches in a crevice on a tree trunk. Pupates in a cocoon well underground. The adults come to light.
The adults fly in one generation a year: from early October to late November, but mainly during mid October till mid November.
