(Frey & Boll, 1873)
The length of the forewings is 3-4.3 mm. Adults are on wing from mid-March to early May and from late June to early October. There are probably two generations per year.
The larvae feed on Salix babylonica, Salix bebbiana, Salix discolor and Salix candida species. They mine the leaves of their host plant. The mine has the form of a small tentiform blotch on the underside of the leaf. It is located between the veins. It is elongate-oval and somewhat wrinkled.
