Habitat:

The caterpillar overwinters fairly mature and pupates in the spring. The moths fly from late April to June or early July. Occasionally, in July/August is added a very partial second generation.

Endangerment: regionally endangered or decreasing

Endangerment factors:
Since clear forest structures are becoming less common, Scopula floslactata is in decline, but not yet endangered severely..

Remarks:
Scopula floslactata is found in Europe and temperate Asia to the Pacific.
