Meiosimyza rorida are active from May to October in Central Europe, and prefer to live in the herb layers of deciduous forests, where they can be encountered moving slowly on leaves and stems. When disturbed, they hide. Females lay their eggs in rotting leaves, which the larvae feed on after hatching.
