Habitats and Life History
Habitats:
Plant Associates: "Nymphs of cixiids are subterranean, feeding on roots and possibly fungi. The significance of adult host records is unclear. Many cixiids are presumed to be polyphagous (as adults), most often on woody plants." Adults have been found on Prunus (Rosaceae, cherry, plum). (UDEL)
Behavior: Can probably be attracted at night with a light.
