A fairly common species throughout Belgium.
The adults have been observed from mid May till the end of June. They are active in late evening and later come to light.
The larva lives in spun shoots or leaves on Prunus spinosa, P. domestica or P. avium. It has been reported also, but less frequently, from Malus, Pyrus, Crataegus or Corylus. It pupates in the larval habitation or in freshy spun leaves.
