The wingspan is about 6.4 mm.
The larvae feed on Verbesina virginica. They mine the leaves of their host plant. The mine has the form of a roomy tent-shaped mine on the underside of the leaf. The lower epidermis is much wrinkled longitudinally. Pupation takes place in an elongate white cocoon suspended at both ends like a hammock inside the mine.
