A recent split from D. venustus added to the British list by Speight & Vanappelghem (2018).


A yet, little is known about the biology, but it is likley to be suimilar to the closely related D. venustsus whose larvae are feed on arboreal aphids on coniferous trees.


A few records from coniferous woodlands in central Scotland and North Yorkshire.


Likely to be more widespread in coniferous situations, but the difficulty of identification may limit the numbers of records.
