A very rare and local species in Belgium.
The egg is laid on the underside, usually not far from the midrib.
The mine starts as a very contorted gallery filled with redbrown coiled frass. Further on the gallery widens and sometimes becoming a large irregular blotch with black frass irregularly scattered in the mine.

The adults fly in one generation a year, mainly in July.
The catterpillar mainly feeds on Rosa, but also on Filipendula and Sanguisorba.
