A fairly common species in Belgium.
The larva makes a leafmine usually starting close to the midrib or near the leaf edge on the upper- or underside of small-leaved willows. Pupates in a dark reddish brown cocoon covered with fluffy silk.
The adults fly in two generations a year: during May and June and again in September.
