Extremely local and distinctly episodic in any numbers, larvae are sometimes noticeably more numerous than the resulting adults. Single-brooded, flying mainly from late June to mid August, occasionally to late August. Larvae feed on poplars, including black poplar, and on willows and sallow. (Pratt, 2011)
