Catalogue
of the Lepidoptera of Belgium


Cnephasia incertana (Treitschke, 1835)

A common species throughout Belgium.

The larva feeds on a wide range of plants. The young larva mines in the leaves, but after hibernation it lives between spun leaves, twisting those of tender shoots. Pupation in a folded leaf, or amongst detritus.

The adults have been observed from late May till the end of July. The moths are active in the evening and later come to light.
