Like all Xylena and most Xylenini, nupera emerges in fall, from late August through mid November (!)), and hibernates as an adult before re-appearing in spring, around the first of May in Alberta. They occur in a wide range of open vegetated habitats such as meadows and gardens, less commonly in open woodland. Adults come to both light and sugar baits, but like Catocala moths are probably more common at bait. Larvae are generalists, feeding on a variety of forbs, herbs and gramminoids, also on the leaves of some trees or shrubs (i.e. willow, cherry). There is a single brood.
