Nutrition:
Especially leaves of deciduous bushes

Habitat:
Odontopodisma decipiens inhabits forest edges, blackberry hedges, scrub and other shrub-rich habitats such as clearings or old quarries up to about 1700m above sea level.

Life cycle:
The adults are found from late June to October and sit in hot weather openly on the leaves.

Endangerment factors:
In places, Odontopodisma decipiens is threatened by the disappearance of the broad forest edges. Today, unfortunately, there dominate mostly sharp boundaries between fields and forest because the stepped shrub zones have disappeared in favour of the intensive use of land.

Remarks:
Odontopodisma decipiens occurs with the subspecies insubrica in the southern Alps in the Insubric region (Ticino and neighbouring Italy). Otherwise, Odontopodisma decipiens is distributed in eastern and southeastern Europe (from E- and S-Austria and Slovakia to the southeast).
