of the Lepidoptera of Belgium

Cochylis nana (Haworth, 1811)

Observed in many areas in Belgium, though usually not very common.

The larva lives in a catkin of Betula spp. It hibernates full-fed from October in a cocoon spun in a bark crevice. Pupation in the cocoon.

The adults have been observed from mid May till mid June. The moths are active around Betula trees at dusk and occasionally come to light.
