Biology: Herbivorous species. It is commonly known as the box bug in the UK as it once only occurred in Box Hill in Surrey where it fed on box trees.
It is exploiting different foodplants, and has been found on hawthorn, buckthorn, yew and plum trees.
Distribution: It commonly occurs throughout the Mediterranean region and extends to Central Asia and parts of northwestern Europe.
