Xylotrechus alakolensis Karpinski & Szczepanski, 2018 *  Fig. 2I

Material examined.

East Kazakhstan Region: 15 km NW of Taskesken [ Таскескен] (47°18'N, 80°36'E), 15 VI 2017, 627 m a.s.l., 1♂, leg. WTS.


This newly described species was identified based on the specimen presented herein (Fig. 2I). Although only the holotype is known as yet, the range of this taxon is most likely limited to the eastern part of Kazakhstan. More information is provided in Karpiński and Szczepański (2018).

A single male was collected within a very rich roadside vegetation strip in a steppe-like habitat (Fig. 12C) using the sweep-netting method.
