A very distinctive species that is fairly common in England, especially in the southeast, but rarer in Scotland and Wales. It is found on a range of woody plants, including most common deciduous trees.
The huge number of cross-veins in the wings is very characteristic; there is only one similar species, I. muscaeformis, but this is much rarer.
