so often observed in Belgium. As with many of the Tineidae, this
species is probably underrecorded.
larva lives on bracket-fungi, especially Piptoperus betulinus but also
in dead wood. Pupation takes places in the fungus or wood.
adults have been observed from late April till end of September.
During the day, they rest in crevices of bark and later on they come
occasionally to light.
