A widely distributed and fairly common species in Belgium.
The adults fly in one genertion a year; from mid June towards early September. They are active from evening onwards and later come to light.
The dark green larva lives in shoots and spun leaves, flowers and young fruits of Padus avium, Pyrus, Malus, Crataegus, Ribes etc... Occasionally found on Quercus and Salix caprea. Can be a pest of fruit trees. Pupation takes places in the larval feeding places or in edges of leaves.
