The wingspan is about 11 mm.
The larvae feed on the leaves of Prunus, Rosa, Amelanchier, Betula, Alnus, Juglans, Myrica, Comptonia, Salix, Populus and Fraxinus species. They create a composite leaf case. The silken case is tubular at first. Young larvae overwinter in this case. In spring, the case is attached to a larger, irregularly oval section formed by cutting out a portion of the mine, and the early section is discarded.
