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.
