A fairly common species throughout Belgium, especially in the Kempen area.
The adults have been observed from late May till the end of July. The moths are active from dusk onwards and later come to light.
The larva feeds in spun or rolled leafs of Quercus, Betula, Corylus, Salix caprea, Vaccinium, Hedera, Myrica and many more as Sorbus, Sambucus etc... The first instar larva overwinters in a silken hibernaculum, spun at the base of a twig or in crevices.
