These pictures show a female of Tragosoma depsarium (Linnaeus, 1767). Tragosoma depsarium is a Holoarctic species. In the Palaearctics it lives in the coniferous forests of Europe and Siberia. In Europe it reaches the Pyrenees in the SW and the mountain Olympus (Greece) in the SE. In Central Europe, however, it certainly belongs to the rarest longhorn beetle species. Tragosoma depsarium develops in Pinus spp. and sometimes also in Norway spruce (Picea abies). Larvae of Tragosoma depsarium feed primarily in the decaying sapwood of dead, fallen trunks, and occasionally in old stumps (cf. Figures 1 - 3). The development period lasts at least three years. Pupation takes place in the wood and adults appear from the end of June to August (middle of July to August in Central Europe) and are active during the night.

Life cycle: > 3 years
Adults in: June - August
Host plant: Pinus, Picea abies
Distribution: Holoarctic species
