very local and very rare species in Belgium, only recorded from a few
localities in the extreme south in the Luxembourg. Seems to be declining during the last
larva lives on Tilia cordata. Hibernates as pupa in a thin and sturdy cocoon in a folded leaf.
adults fly in June and July. They sometimes come to light.
