This species is a seed eater, sometimes climbing tall vegetation such as the common reed in order to feed. It is nocturnal in its habits, possibly to avoid predation by frogs. The beetle has an annual life-cycle, breeding in spring, and the larvae feed during the summer months before pupating and spending the winter in tussocks.
