Very short, full-depth corridor, without frass, along the midrib. The corridor continues in a tube of silk, covered with frass; the larva then causes window feeding. Eventually the larve cuts a thick vein, which causes the leaf to form a funnel, in which the larva lives.
Viburnum lantana, opulus. tinus.

Bivoltine; hibernation as imago.
