On barren sandy (sometimes clay-mixed) banks and shores of rivers and lakes.

Member of the inaequale group (subgenus Bracteon). Similar to B. carinula but prothorax without latero-basal carina.

Third elytral interval almost constantly more suddenly widened before anterior silver spot which is at least twice as broad as 4th interval; the dark color of mirrors often more extended upon adjoining intervals than in carinula.
