Diagnosis

Distinguished from other Limonia   by the structure of the male genitalia (Fig. 4) as well as wing pattern and the shape of the tarsal claws ( Starý and Salmela 2004, fig. 1, 2).

Distribution

Holarctic species, recently discovered in Finland ( Starý and Salmela 2004) and Russian Karelia ( Polevoi and Salmela 2014).

Ecology

Saproxylic species, associated with dead aspen wood ( Halme et al. 2012). According to the authors' data, this species prefers wind-broken aspens with a diameter over 50 cm, fallen 6 years ago Table 1. It favoured the trunks colonised by Hyphoderma setigerum   (RS=0.81, P<0.01), Peniophora incarnata   (RS=0.62, P<0.05), Scutellinia scutellata   and Lentaria afflata   (RS=0.59, P<0.05).

Conservation
