Notes

It is one of the most common species associated with ancient forests and wetlands. The species lives on the banks of rivers and swamps where the larva develops in many deciduous species and in the decay of logs, stumps, and branches. It pupates at end of the season and hibernates as adult ( Alexander 2002 , Platia 1994 ).
