A very rare and seldom recorded species in the southern part of Belgium.
Wingspan 18–20 mm; Often confused with Celypha lacunana, the best for identification is to check the genitalia.
Inner 2/3 of the front wing yellow-brown with a black drawing and with a wide light cross band that protrudes in the middle of the wing. Outer 1/3 greyish white with brown and black spots. The large brown spot from the outer edge tapers off at a point.
The larva lives between intertwined leaves on the food plant. Pupation on the larval food plant.
The adults fly in two generations a year from mid-May towards August.
It prefers usually moist places.
