A not so common species throughout Belgium. Some forms can be confused with the much rarer Acleris comariana.
The adults fly from mid July till the end of October. They are active from dusk and later come to light.
The larva lives between spun leaves and in the flowers of a great variety of plants: Crataegus, Prunus, Rosa, Rubus, Sorbus, Salix or Vaccinium. Pupation in a folded leaf or the larval habitation. The species hibernates in the egg stage.
