Common in a wide range of habitats, including gardens, orchards, hedgerows and woodland, throughout England and Wales. Well distributed across much of Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan male 19-23 mm, female 20-28 mm. The male lacks the purple-brown ground colour of the forewing of A. oporana; the female is more similar to A. betulana but readily distinguished by the orange coloration in the apical half of the hindwing [Bradley]. Larva polyphagous on a wide variety of deciduous trees and shrubs, even occasionally on conifers, living within a spun or rolled leaf, and sometimes a pest on Apple trees.
