common migrant in Belgium, present every year, occasionally in large
larva lives on Galium. It pupates in a flimsy cocoon spun among foliage or in leaf litter.
adults have been observed from February till November, but most
specimens are usually been seen from May till September. They are
active during daytime. During mild winters the species is able to
hibernate as an adult in sheltered places like outbuildings, crevices
and holes in walls and trees and it will probably become a breeding
resident in small numbers in near future.
