Cyrtoclytus caproides, an insular species (Sakhalin, Kunashir Island, and Islands of Japan, reports exist of its sporadic occurrence in northeast China and the Korean Peninsula), has been described from Ippongi (Japan) as Clytus caproides by Henry Walter Bates in 1873 [▽]. The species inhabits broad-leaved forests. Beetles emerge from June to beginning of September. After mating, female oviposits in bark crevices. Larvae develop in trunks and thick shoots of dead broadleaf trees, especially maples (Acer spp.) and elms (Ulmus spp.) [✧].
Body length: 10 - 18 mm Life cycle: 2 - 3 years Adults in: June - Septemeber Host plant: polyphagous in deciduous trees (Acer, Ulmus, Betula, Diospyros, Betula, Celtis etc.) [❖] Distribution: Sakhalin, Kunashir island, Japan, NE China, Korea
The beetles in the pictures were collected in: ♂ - Takasaki-shizen-no-mori (Tsukuba, Ibaraki prefecture, Kantō region, Honshu, Japan) on June 16, 2020; ♀ - Yokokawa (Fujihara-machi, Tochigi prefecture, Kantō region, Honshu, Japan) on July 7, 1989.
