Detail
Pontomediterranean species preffering in Central Europe hilly biotopes up to 700 m. Females prefer branches or young trunks of the diameter 10-2- cm for oviposition, but larvae can be found rather often in twigs of a diameter of 3-5 cm. Single eggs are deposited into fine crevices of the bark and larvae bore their tunnels in the phloem, sometimes also partly in the sapwood. The tunnels are rather short (about 15 cm) but conspicuously undulate; the pupal chamber is situated in the sapwood. The development lasts one year, the larva of the last instar hibernates, then continues its feeding in the spring and pupates in May. The first adults can be seen at the beginning of June but usually they appear at the end of June. Host plants: Celtis australis, Ulmus carpinifolia (Bílý, 2002).
