Notes

The species is rare but widespread as are the other species of the genus. The larva develops under the bark of various broadleaves, mainly birch, poplar, willow, and aspen. The adults mostly occur on stacks of dry branches or logs of host plants and fly and run around in sunshine ( Hůrka 2005).
