A common species throughout Belgium.

The young larva makes a long, sinuous leaf-mine mainly on rosaceous trees.
It pupates in a silken cocoon which is suspended by silken threads on either surface of a leaf.
The imago hibernates, often in thatch or evergreens. They are mainly active at dusk but occasionally come to light.
The adults fly in three generations a year: June, August and from October till April.
The larva lives on Prunus cerasus, or on Betula.
