A rather common species throughout Belgium.
The adults fly in two generations a year: onwards from late April till mid June and again in July and August. They are active from dusk onwards and later come to light.
The larva of the first generation lives on Crataegus and Prunus spinosa, the one of the second generation lives on the flowers of Solidago, Senecio jacobaea, Erica, Calluna etc... Hibernates as a pupa among plant debris.
