Life History: There is one generation per year. The larvae feed on Ostrya virginiana. The species overwinters in the larval stage. After overwintering, young larvae feed on the undersurface of the base of a leaf. A tube is constructed and several nearby leaves are pulled together around the tube. The larvae usually leave this tube to construct a second one. Pupation takes place in a pupal chamber which is made at the end of the tube.
Caterpillar Hosts: Ostrya virginiana
Range: Throughout most of eastern United States and southeastern Canada
