Outside of Eurasia, it is known from North America where it is found in eastern Canada, Michigan, and Alaska. The wingspan is 10-13 mm. The larvae feed on Ledum palustre, Ledum groenlandicum and Chamaedaphne calyculata. They create a strongly curved lobe case. Some very large leaf fragments are found in the central part.
