The only Belgian Cnephasia that can be recognized by external characters. Hitherto a very rare and local species in Belgium.
The adults have been observed from June till the end of July. The moths are active in the evening and later come to light.
The polyphagous larva feeds on a wide range of plants like Chrysanthemum, Ranunculus, Iris, Lilium, Lychnis, Humulus etc... After hibernation as a first instar larva in a silken hibernacula, it first mines a leaf, then lives between leaves spun together.
