12-16 mm. Holomediterranean species. Develops for two years. Foodplants are oaks, preferring grove-like stands in dry habitats and at forest edges. Adults fly in June-July, can be found in the crown of the foodplant. Females oviposit on young shoots. The hatching larvae bore into the shoot and chew long spiral tunnels in the sapwood (so called "death-ring"), reaching 1 m in length. The attacked branches often die. Widespread in the oak forests of mountainous and hilly regions, but rarely seen due its cryptic way of life.
