Material examined.

East Kazakhstan Region: Putintsevo [ Путинцево] env. (49°52'N, 84°21'E), 472 m a.s.l., 21-22 VI 2017, 1♂, 1♀, leg. WTS; 1♂, 2♀♀, (IV 2018 ex cult.) 1♂, from Salix  sp., leg. LK; 1♀, leg. MW; Bykovo [ Быково] env. (49°39'N, 84°33'E), 570 m a.s.l., 24 VI 2017, 1♂, 3 larvae, (24 VII 2017 ex larva) 1♂, from Populus  sp., leg. MW.

Remarks.

This species is distributed from Eastern Europe through Siberia, including northern Kazakhstan, Mongolia and China, to the Far East and Sakhalin ( Cherepanov 1990c, Danilevsky 2018a). It was widely discussed in a previous paper concerning the longhorn beetles of Mongolia ( Karpiński et al. 2018).

The imagines were collected on the bark or beaten down from the dead branches and boughs of a few deciduous tree species (mostly of middle-aged birches Betula  ). Two specimens were additionally reared from the collected wood material of a fallen poplar Populus  trunk and a thin willow Salix  trunk.
