A fairly common species in the Kempen area in Belgium, elsewhere a rather rare species, though widespread.
The adults fly in two generations a year; from late April till June and again from late July till August. They are active from dusk and later come to light.
The larva feeds mainly on Frangula alnus and Rhamnus catharticus, but also on Ligustrum, Cornus and Prunus spinosa. First living in a folded leaf and later spinning two leaves together. Infrequently, the larva may be found in spun terminal shoots.Pupation in a whitish cocoon between spun leaves or in leaf litter on the ground.
