Strophedra weirana (Douglas, 1850)
little beech piercer
The larva between two leaves that are spun neatly one above the order, causing window feeding; much frass accumulates between the leaves.
Univoltine, sometimes bivoltine. Hibernation as a pupa in a frass-covered cocoon still between the two leaves, now fallen to the ground.
