The larva lives at first inside a leaf of usually the food plant, later on under a silken web.
The moths come to light.
The adults fly from mid May till July, and a partial second generation can occur in favourable years in August and September.
The larva lives on Crataegus, but it has also been recorded from Prunus spinosa and Cotoneaster.
