Biological remarks. In Slovakia, Agrilus ater   ( Figs 1 View FIGURES 1 A–1C) is together with A. suvorovi   a serious pest of Populus   . Both species are frequently found in urban areas on planted trees. The biology of both species is very similar but A. ater   , unlike A. suvorovi   , develops in parts with very thick bark (trunk, large diameter branches) because the pupal camber is located in the bark ( Fig. 1C View FIGURES 1 ).
