A common species throughout Belgium.
Hibernates as a pupa underground.
The adults are attracted to light.
The adults fly in one generation a year; usually from early March till early May, but in mild conditions, the first moths can be seen from late January onwards.
The larva lives on various deciduous trees, with a preference for Quercus.
