A common species throughout Belgium.
Hibernates as a small larva, near the ground among vegetation. Pupates in a loose cocoon spun under or near a leaf of the food plant. The adults are active from dusk onwards and later come to light and rarely to sugar.
The adults fly in two different generations, sometimes three, from mid May till end of September.
