Biology

Both larvae and adults feed on wild thyme, and show a preference for the flowers. Larvae have been found during the day on plants growing in crevices, and beneath stones (3). Adults are present from April to September, and eggs are laid during June. It is thought that the larval stage overwinters, as larvae have been found in September and October, but young adults may also overwinter (5).
