mine

The larva makes a relatively long, lower surface gallery, that widens into a blotch of 3-4 mm long, where all leaf tissue is consumed, leaving only the venation. Later larval stages live free, living in three, successively larger, leaf rolls made of downfolded leaf segments.

hostplants

Sapindaceae, monophagous

Acer
campestre, platanoides, pseudoplatanus, saccharinum.

phenology

Larvae in July – August (Emmet ao, 1985a), but, at least in the Nethelands, there probably is another, earlier, larva generation (Corver ao, 2011a).

NE recorded (Corver ao, 2011a).
