Host plants:
The caterpillar lives polyphagous in the herb layer.

Habitat:
Scopula immutata inhabits wet meadows such as stream valleys, fens, shores, clear swamp forests and other extensive, moist habitats. Occasionally Scopula immutata is also found in drier meadows in air-humid regions.

Life cycle:
The moths fly depending on the altitude in one or two generations from May to September. At most sites the peak is in June, at higher altitudes more in July.

Endangerment: regionally endangered or decreasing

Endangerment factors:
Since extensive wet meadows occur only relic-like in most of nowadays Central European landscapes and are also constantly harassed, even this more adaptable species is now threatened there.

Remarks:
Scopula immutata is widespread in Europe and temperate Asia to the Pacific.
