A rare species in Belgium, mainly observed in the northern part.
The larva feeds from April till early June in an unopened leaf-bud or in spun leaves. Pupation takes place in a flimsy cocoon amongst leaf-litter, usually in a fold of a dead leaf.
The adults are active from late afternoon onwards and later come to light.
The adults have been observed in June and July.
