Read full entry


Breeding takes place during the spring, larvae are present in the summer and the adults that emerge later on in the year overwinter, emerging to breed the following spring, completing the annual lifecycle (3). Adults are winged and are able to fly (3). It is believed that both the adults and larvae feed on plant matter, particularly seeds (3), and it is thought that adults occur at the roots of plants (4).
