It sometimes lives associated with ants such as Lasius fuliginosus   and Formica cunicularia   . The larva is a predator of other insect larvae and is often found in the burrows of Bostrychus   sp. and Crypturgus pusillus   . The adult appears in the spring and at the end of summer ( Alexander 2002, Vienna 1980).
