A very rare and declining species, formerly much more widespread. Used to occur in domestic surroundings such as gardens, but has become very local. Its main stronghold in Belgium seems to be central LI nowadays.
The larva hibernates.
Adults are attracted to light and sugar and later come to light.
The adults are on the wing from mid July towards early September.
The larva feeds on a number of herbaceous plants.
