A rather common species throughout Belgium.
The adults fly in three generations a year; from end April till late September. They are active from dusk onwards and later come to light and sugar.
The larva lives on various Salix species. Hibernates as a pupa, in a tough boat-shaped cocoon often constructed on the bark of a twig or stem of the foodplant.
