Material examined.

East Kazakhstan Region: Putintsevo [ Путинцево] env. (49°52'N, 84°21'E), 472 m a.s.l., 21-23 VI 2017, 1♂, 2♀♀, leg. WTS; 3♂♂, 4♀♀, leg. MW; Bykovo [ Быково] env. (49°39'N, 84°33'E), 570 m a.s.l., 24 VI 2017, 2♀♀, leg. WTS; 4♂♂, 3♀♀, leg. LK; 1♂, 1♀, leg. MW; 1♂, leg. MB.


This is a typical Siberian species. It has been widely discussed in a previous paper concerning the longhorn beetles of Mongolia ( Karpiński et al. 2018). Additionally, we present an interesting melanistic form here (Fig. 2A).

The species was not included in the Kazakh fauna by Kostin (1973), who claimed that all records of this taxon for the country actually belonged to Anastrangalia sanguinolenta  (Linnaeus, 1761) and that the record of A. sequensi  from “Burabay” in the Kokchetav region ( Kadyrbekov et al. 2003) must represent another species - most probably Anastrangalia reyi  (Heyden, 1885) ( Danilevskaya et al. 2009). The occurrence of A. sequensi  in Kazakhstan was finally confirmed in the same locality as we present here by Danilevskaya et al. (2009).
