A fairly common species throughout Belgium, especially in the Kempen area.
The larva feeds in spun or rolled leafs of the food plant.
The first instar larva overwinters in a silken hibernaculum, spun at the base of a twig or in crevices.
The moths are active from dusk onwards and later come to light.
The adults have been observed from late May till the end of July, occasionally later.
