Notes

The species inhabits the old relict forests of broadleaves and conifers throughout Europe. Despite their wide distribution, this species is pretty rare probably because of its hidden lifestyle and difficulty to collect. The larva develops in the hard wood of oaks and also in beeches and is often associated with the ant Lasius brunneus   ( Alexander 2002, Pešić 2011).
