Notes

The species is very common. The larva develops in the rotten wood of old broadleaves with humus-rich soil. It pupates in late summer and autumn in a cocoon in which the beetle overwinters. The adult appears from April to October on the flowers of various herbs, shrubs, trees, and also sometimes at oozing sap ( Hůrka 2005).
