of the Lepidoptera of Belgium

Acrobasis suavella (Zincken, 1818)

A widespread but scattered species throughout Belgium.

The larva lives mainly on Prunus spinosa, spinning a messy whitish silken gallery amongst the leaves. It pupates in a greyish cocoon in or near the larval gallery.

The adults fly in one generation a year; onwards from the end of June till the end of August. They are active during the night and come to light.
