A not so common species throughout Belgium.
The adults have been observed from late April till mid July. The moths are active towards dusk and later come to light.
The larva lives between two leaves of rough-leaved Salix species, which are spun tightly together. It hibernates full-fed in a cocoon spun at ground level and pupates in that cocoon.
