This is an univoltine species (it procreates one generation per year), although a small percentage of adult butterflies emerge in summer and will eventually breed a second generation. It winters as pupa completing its development around October and November. The oviposition period lasts from four to five weeks. Eggs are laid on the lower surface of leaves in a number of parallel and contiguous lines. The number of eggs per oviposition varies from 62 to 227. Larvae hatch in November and they are polyphagous, living on different species of trees and herbaceous plants.
