Biology

This beetle forms aggregations of several individuals, often with beetles of the genus Brachinus. When disturbed it releases a volatile that contains undecane. Its coloration may be aposematic mimicry of the similarly colored Brachinus beetles it lives with, which emit a much more powerful antipredator volatile mix.
