The species is very polyphagous but oak is preferred in Central Europe. Larvae of this species feed in dead red-brown and relatively moist wood in close contact with living tissue, such as the bases of dead branches surrounded by living callus. The pupal cell as well as the larval galleries are filled with typical long red wood fibres created by the larvae. Pupation takes place in wood in the spring. Adults, active from May to early August, are predominantly diurnal, visit fresh juicy wounds of trees and occasionally blossomig bushes and trees (Cornus, Crataegus, Swida, Prunus, etc.).
