A rather rare species throughout Belgium. Numbers vary much over the years.
Hibernates as a larva among plant debris.
Pupates in a cocoon formed on the underside of a leaf of the food plant.
The adults are active from dusk and later come to light and sugar.
The adults fly from mid May till the end of July in one generation.
