At the time of adult emergence, the wood of the three new larval hosts had been dead for 4–5 years, which generally agrees with the host age reported by Craighead (1950). Orthosoma brunneum   previously was reared from six plant families, including the Pinaceae   (Linsley and Chemsak 1997; Vlasak and Vlasakova 2002; Vlasak 2014).
