A fairly common species in Belgium, especially in the northern part.
Literature often mentions that larvae live in spun leaves of different kind of deciduous trees. Research in 2017-2018 however shows that larvae of this species often feed in old webs of Yponomeuta spp. in summer and autumn. Some of the larvae produce moths the same year. Overwinters as a larva in a white cocoon in the web. Pupation in the cocoon next spring.
The adults fly from mid May till September. Partial second generation. They come to light.
