A fairly common species throughout Belgium.
The larva, when young, lives in the buds, later on it prefers the flowers and leaves. Hibernates as an egg, laid in small batches on a twig or in a bark crevice. The adults come to light and sugar.
The adults fly from early August till mid October in one generation a year.
