The adults fly in two generations in May and June and again during August and September.
The larva feed on Tilia cordata, Tilia x vulgaris, Acer pseudoplatanus and sometimes Betula species; They mine the leaves of their host plant. The mine consist of a short, irregular, full depth coridor, which is always located at the leaf margin and generally in the tip of the leaf, the frass broadly scattered. The older larva lives free on the leaf.
