The larvae feed on Dorycnium hirsutum, Dorycnium pentaphyllum and Dorycnium pentaphyllum germanicum. They create a composite leaf case made out of three to five relatively large mined leaf fragments. The rear end is narrowed and bent downwards. The mouth angle is 30-45° and the mouth opening is somewhat shifted to the side. Larvae can be found from August to April.
