Host plants:
The caterpillars live on flowers and perhaps also fruits of many plant species, e.g. Solidago, Calluna, Angelica, Pastinaca, Rubus, Digitalis or Sambucus.

Habitat:
Eupithecia subfuscata inhabits almost all extensive open land and woodland edges. The moth is very adaptable.

Life cycle:
Eupithecia subfuscata occurs most often in one generation between May and July or early August. The larvae are recorded mainly from late July to early October.

Remarks:
Eupithecia subfuscata is widespread in Europe (except the southernmost parts) and temperate Asia to Japan. It is also found in N-America.
