Brachyta punctata punctata, a nominotypic subspecies occuring in Russia (East Siberia), Mongolia, North Korea, and China (Inner Mongolia), has been described from Irkutsk (Russia) environs as Pachyta puctata by Franz Faldermann in 1833 [▽]. The biology of this taxon is not sufficiently known, development with high probability in roots of living herbaceus plants. The adults, active in June - July, are diurnal and anthophilous [✧].
Body length: ♂♂ 9.4 - 13.5 mm / ♀♀ 10.5 - 14.0 mm Life cycle: unknown, probably at least 2 years Adults in: June - July Host plant: probably in roots of herbaceous plants Distribution: Russia (East Siberia), Mongolia, North Korea, and China (Inner Mongolia)
The depicted mounted beetles were collected 20 km W of Erdenet (Эрдэнэт; 1434 m a.s.l., Orkhon Province, North Mongolia) on July 4-6, 2004.
