Anacampsis populella (Clerck, 1759)

A fairly common species in many places in Belgium.

The larva lives in a rolled leaf on Salix caprea, Salix repens, Populus nigra and Populus tremula. Pupation takes place in the larval feeding place.

The adults have been observed from mid June till the end of September. They rest on tree trunks and leaves of the foodplant during daytime and come to light.
