A rather rare species throughout Belgium.
The larva lives under a slight silken web on the upperside of the leaves of the hostplant, feeding on the epidermis. Sometimes the web makes the edges of the leaf curl upwards.
The adults fly in two hard to separate generations from May till August. They come to light.
The larvae feed on Crataegus, Malus, Prunus and Pyrus.
