Dorcadion gebleri lukhtanovi Danilevsky, 1996 * 

Material examined.

East Kazakhstan Region: Kurshim [ Күршім] env. (48°34'N, 83°36'E), 406 m a.s.l., 17 VI 2017, 1♂ (body remains), leg. WTS.


Dorcadion gebleri lukhtanovi  is known from several localities eastwards from Lake Zaysan in northeastern Kazakhstan ( Toropov and Milko 2013). It occurs in the Kurchum Mountain ridge and in the surrounding foothill area ( Danilevsky 1996a). The larvae probably feed on the roots of Achnatherium  spp. The imagines are active from the end of April to May and only sometimes can be observed in June ( Toropov and Milko 2013). According to Danilevsky (1996a), this taxon seems to be a transitional form between D. g. gebleri  and Dorcadion cephalotes  Jakovlev, 1890.

Only the remains of a single male were found in a grassy, semi-ruderal habitat in the Kurchum River valley.
