not so common species throughout Belgium.
larva lives in a leaf spun into a pod on several Salix
species, but not on Salis repens. When full-fed the
larva spins a cocoon amongst leaf-litter in which it hibernates.
Pupation takes place in that cocoon.
adults have been observed from early May till the end of August. They
fly at dusk and later occasionally come to light.
