A rather common species throughout Belgium.
The adults fly in two generations a year: from mid April till mid July. They are active from dusk onwards and later come to light.
The larva lives mainly on a great variety of herbaceous plants, also on woody broadleaved plants and frequently on deciduous trees like Salix and Populus tremula. Hibernates as pupa among plant debris or behind loose bark.
