A rather common species throughout Belgium.
The adults have been observed from the end of June till well in August. They are active at dusk and later come to light.
The larva spins several leaves together from which it feeds on the surrounding leaves. It lives on Crataegus, Prunus spinosa, or occasionally on Cotoneaster. Pupation takes places between loosely spun leaves of the foodplant.
