Cleroclytus semirufus, a Central-Asian taxon of interesting tribe Tillomorphini, has been described from "Turkestan" by Gustav Kraatz in 1884 [▽]. C. semirufus inhabits various habitats such as mountain and submountain forests, steppes and tugay forests. The species is broadly polyphagous and its larvae develop in the twigs of various decidouos trees and shrubs (e.g. Salix, Populus, Rosa, Atraphaxis, Berberis, Fraxinus, Acer, Eleagnus). The adults, active from May to July, are diurnal and anthophilous.
