Macroleptura thoracica (Creutzer, 1799) 

Material examined.

Putintsevo [ Путинцево] env. (49°52'N, 84°21'E), 472 m a.s.l., 24 VI 2017, 1♀, leg. MW; 1♀, leg. WTS.


This is a typical Siberian species. It was discussed in a previous paper concerning the longhorn beetles of Mongolia ( Karpiński et al. 2018).

Several individuals of M. thoracica  were collected on dead birch trunks in this locality in June 2005 ( Danilevskaya et al. 2009).

In our research, two specimens were collected in the habitat of a rather old Populus  forest (Fig. 15F) that extends along the Khamir River in the foothills of the West Altai Mountains. The first one was caught in flight, whereas the second was beaten down from a trunk of a dead willow Salix  sp.
