It is a Korean endemic plant, and called 'Sangsahwa (Magic Lily)' because its leaves and flowers can never meet. The leaves grow from the end of February to May, and the flowers blow from the end of July to early August. The flowers are deep yellow.
They are 25mm~40mm long with gleaming luster on their bodies. Their heads are dented in the middle, and have dark brown compound eyes. Imagoes can be seen from July to September, and larvae live in rotten nettle trees or zelkova trees.
