The wingspan is 34–39 mm. Adults are on wing from September to October in one generation per year.

The larvae feed on various herbaceous plants. Young larvae are green with a conspicuous whitish stripe at the side. After the fifth instar, they turn brown. The species overwinters in the larval stage.
