Notes

The species lives from the plains to the hills and rarely in the mountains; they are mainly found in forests but are also found in urban habitats. It lives under the bark of various trees such as beech, oak, chestnut, elm, lime, maple, and pine trees. Sometimes it is found in galleries of Scolytidae   ( Scolytus   sp., Pteleobius   sp., Taphrorychus   sp., Tomicus   sp.). It is attracted to both fresh and fermented sap ( Ratti 1999).
