O. modestus was captured in 1974 at 2 different localities in the province of Limburg. These were the 1st records since Cobben (1951) recorded it as new for the Dutch fauna from the same province. The larvae were successfully reared in female catkins of Alnus glutinosa (L.), which contained the ripe seeds. The biology of the species is discussed and the last instar larva is figured.
