A fairly common species in Belgium, especially in the northern part.
The adults have been observed from early June till early September. They emerge at about 10 a.m. and then rest on the trunk till noon. They are active in sunshine and later come to light.
The larva lives in the bark of various rosaceous trees, especially mature Prunus avium and Malus spp. trees. Also on Prunus cerasus and other Prunus spp. It hibernates. Pupation takes places in the feeding place.
