A very common species throughout Belgium.
Hibernates as a pupa underground.
The moths come to light.
The adults fly in two or three, difficult to separate, generations a year: usually from mid March till mid September. During mild conditions the first moths can be seen from early February onwards.
The very variable larva lives on a variety of trees, like Betula orSalix.
