The wingspan is 16–22 mm. Adults are on wing in May and June.

The larvae feed on Rosa and occasionally also on Rubus, Pyrus, Malus, Prunus, Cydonia, Myrica, Carpinus and Quercus. The larvae damage cultivated roses, feeding in the flower buds and young shoots or between two spun leaves. There is only little damage to the foliage, but infested shoots can be distorted and flower buds destroyed.
