Two generations occur each year, one flies in May and June, the other in August, and these generations may overlap (5). Caterpillars occur between June and September (7); they are very colourful but are fairly well camouflaged when amongst their foodplant (3). The pupal stage overwinters inside a robust cocoon attached to objects such as walls and fence posts (5).
