Recurvaria leucatella (Clerck, 1759)

A rather common species throughout Belgium, mainly in the limestone area.

The larva lives between two spun leaves, or in the flower-heads of Crataegus or Malus.

The adults fly in July and August. Most specimens have been observed in the second half of July. They come to light.
