A very common species throughout Belgium, sometimes abundant. One of the most common species of Tortricidae in Belgium that occurs in very diverse biotopes.
The adults have been observed from the end of April till the end of September. The specimens from late August and September belong to a partial second generation which overlaps with the first one. The adults are active at dusk and later come to light.
An extremely polyphagous species. The young larva hibernates. It feeds in spun leaves, shoots or flowers of most species of herbaceous plants, even on trees or shrubs. Pupation in a cocoon amongst leaf-litter.
