Monochamus sartor urussovii (Fischer von Waldheim, 1805)


Monochamus sartor urussovii (Fischer von Waldheim, 1805) 

Material examined.

East Kazakhstan Region: Putintsevo [ Путинцево] env. (49°52'N, 84°21'E), 472 m a.s.l., 21 VI 2017, 1♂, leg. WTS.


This taxon is widespread in Siberia and is distributed from Scandinavia and Eastern Europe (NE Poland) to the Far East and Japan ( Plewa et al. 2018). It was discussed in a previous paper concerning the longhorn beetles of Mongolia ( Karpiński et al. 2018). The taxonomic status of this species was uncertain. Wallin et al. (2013) considered M. urussovii  to be a subspecies of Monochamus sartor  (Fabricius, 1787). This status was recently confirmed also by Plewa et al. (2018) by using different sets of data, such as morphology, genetics and ecology.
