Host plants:
The caterpillar lives on Juniperus species, in Central Europe especially on Juniperus communis.

Habitat:
Eupithecia intricata mainly inhabits juniper heath of all kinds. In addition, the moth will cope with planted juniper in gardens and parks.

Life cycle:
The pupa hibernates. The moths fly from late April to early September, in a single generation or two. In Central Europe usually only one generation is formed from May to early July. The caterpillars are found between June and October.

Remarks:
Eupithecia intricata is widespread Holarctic (most of Europe, large parts of central and northern Asia, North America).
