A resident species. Larval mines occur sparingly in damp habitats in both vice-counties. Increasing, but perhaps under recorded throughout the county. Double brooded, flying mainly during April and May and again in August. Larvae feed on sallow including grey willow, eared sallow, and goat willow. (Pratt, 2011)
