A not so common species in Belgium, but probably overlooked due its very similar appearance with A. pruniella.
The larva lives in the terminal shoots of the food plant. It usually overwinters as a young larva in a spinning on the food plant.
It pupates in a rough cocoon on the ground.
The adults are active by day, but also at night when they come to light.
The adults fly in one generation a year during June, July and August.
The larva lives in the terminal shoots of Crataegus.
