Biology

Little is known of the biology of this species; the life history is largely a mystery but it seems likely that it is complex and specialised (5). Adults fly in June, males are rarely seen, and females fly only in sunny conditions (4). Evidence suggests that the larvae are predatory, and it has been speculated that they may be associated with the ant species Lasius fulginosus, feeding on aphids that the ants have herded (4).
