Endotricha flammealis are active at night and at dawn and approach artificial light sources. They fly from May to September. They live in forest edges, meadows, forests and oak shrubs.
The females lay their eggs in summer on the underside of leaves on foliage plants. The caterpillars initially live in tissue. The caterpillars are brownish in colour. From October on, they can be found on the ground, where they feed on the fallen leaves of willows and oaks.
