The larva makes out of much silk and frass a dark brown retreat in the branches; when the leaves around have withered he moves and makes a new retreat elsewhere, resulting in many vacated cells for one occupied.
Erica arborea, australis, soparia, umbellata.
The larva hibernates, then pupates, in the latest retreat.
