The larvae feed on the leaves of Quercus species, but also on other deciduous trees such as Corylus, Carpinus betulus, Betula and Myrica gale. They live in a slight silken spinning (a shelter like the web of a spider). Pupation takes place in a pale brown boat-shaped cocoon under a leaf, in a crevice in bark or among plant debris on the ground.
