This is the smallest European species of the genus. The larva is polyphagous and develops for two years in dead wood, but it also often lives in the wood of various damaged or diseased broadleaves. The adult is active for most of the spring and summer and appears in the flowers of shrubs and herbs and on old wood ( Hůrka 2005, Pesarini and Sabbadini 1994).
