June and July are peak times for the adult.
The larvae develop inside the black fungus known as King Alfred's Cakes or Cramp Balls (Daldinia concentrica).
It is not quite as scarce as its common name would suggest. British records come mainly from England around a line from the Humber to the Severn.
Fairly frequent in Leicestershire and Rutland. There were a total of 44 VC55 records for this species up to March 2015.
