A fairly common species throughout Belgium.
The adults fly from late April towards September in different generations a year. They come to light.
The larva feeds on the fruits of Prunus spinosa, Prunus domestica and other Prunus species. It hibernates as a full grown larva in a cocoon spun on bark or amongst plant debros on the ground. It can be a serious pest especially in orchards.
