case (from van der Wolf, 1992a).
Larva in a trivalved tubular silken case of 8-10 mm in length, with a mouth angle of ± 20°. The larva enlarges its case at the oral side by adding light-coloured silk, that becomes darker in the course of time. The larva feed upon the fruits, both the green ones and the ripe black ones, often close to the ground, hidden by the vegetation.host plants
