Host plants:
The larvae feed on woody species of rose family, especially Prunus, Pyrus and Crataegus.

Habitat:
Allophyes asiatica inhabits habitats of all kinds, provided that host plants occur. It is mostly found in sites of medium altitude (above 400m asl).

Life cycle:
The moths occur in autumn (mainly October to December) and the egg overwinters. The larvae develop in spring (April to June). They can be beaten easily.

Remarks:
In Europe Allophyes asiatica is so far only known from Samos Island (Greece). It may be found in future in some other east Egean islands. Otherwise it occurs in Cyprus and from Asia Minor eastward.
