A rather common species in most areas of Belgium.
The larva feeds on the leaves, flowers and seed-heads. It lives in a leave of which it spins the edges downwards. It hibernates in its cocoon. Pupation in a white silken cocoon within a pyramidal web.
The adults are active at dusk and later come to light.
The adults fly from the end of May till mid-August.
