7-15 mm. Mediterranean species. The larvae develop in thicker drying branches of oaks (mainly Quercus pubescens) for 2-3 years. Adult fly in May-June at forest edges. Males can often be found on yellow flowers while females visit flowers less frequently. Can be found at many places in warmer oak forests in mountainous and hilly regions, but not common in Hungary.
