The larvae feed on Pinus flexilis. Late instar larvae tie needles into a bundle and mine two or more of them, starting below the middle of the needle, and mining toward the apex. The frass is ejected through the mine entrance. Full-grown larvae construct a new bundle within which pupation takes place in a dense, white cocoon.
