A common species throughout Belgium.
The adults have been observed from mid June till September. The moths come to light.
The larva lives at first in spun leaves or a flower of Acer campestre or A. pseudoplatanus, later on in a longitudinally rolled leaf. It hibernates. Pupation in a white silken cocoon spun in a folded leaf of the foodplant.
