Material examined.

East Kazakhstan Region: Putintsevo [ Путинцево] env. (49°52'N, 84°21'E), 472 m a.s.l., 22 VI 2017, 1♀, leg. MB, coll. MW.

Remarks.

This is a rather rare but widespread species that is distributed from eastern Europe to the Far East ( Danilevsky 2018a). It was discussed in a previous paper concerning the longhorn beetles of Mongolia ( Karpiński et al. 2018).

A single female was beaten down from a dead willow in a mountain deciduous forest dominated by Populus  and Salix  .

The collected specimen represents the white pubescence form (var. albopubescens  Pic, 1925), which is characteristic for central-east Asia but rather rare in Europe (e.g. the Czech Republic, France). Very similar specimens are deposited in Abdysalom Kadyrov’s collection (Dushanbe) that represents cerambycid material from Tajikistan.
