A fairly common species throughout Belgium.
Hibernates as a small larva close to the ground. The adults come to light and sugar.
The adults fly in one, sometimes two generations a year: from May till late August, but most specimens during June and July.
The larva lives on various shrubs and herbaceous plants like: Rubus, Primula, Calluna vulgaris, Salix, Crataegus, Prunus spinosa and Vaccinium myrtillus.
