R e m a r k s. This species was collected in larval stage. Larvae are greenish. Early instars skeletonize leaves; later instars damage buds, flowers, and newly emerged leaves. Larvae attach young leaves by silk and feed inside. In early spring larvae damage buds by eating them from inside. Then they join together several buds, flowers, and/or young leaves with silk. Pupae are black or dark brown. The pupa develops within 9-12 days. Adults emerge in late May or early June. Eggs are yellowish-green. Egg clusters contain 15 to 18 eggs. New to Azerbaijan fauna .

This species has one generation throughout its range. Second and third instars overwinter in fairly dense white cocoons in cracks of the bark of trunks and branches, under leaf litter, fixed to the cortex, as well as under dry bud scales on the branches. Overwintered larvae hatch from their winter cocoons in April and May. In May and early June they gnaw blossoming buds and twisted on treetops leaves and flowers. Older instar larvae can gnaw unripe apples and other fruits outside. Pupate in feeding places or in the crevices of trunks. Adults hatch from the end of May to July. Eggs are laid on the leaves, sometimes along the veins ( KUZNETSOV 1994).
