Oberea linearis has been described from Sweden as Cerambyx linearis by Carl Linné in 1761 [❖]. O. linearis, an Euro-Turanian species widespread from the Northern half of Iberian Peninsula to Southern Urals, inhabits the mesophilic broadleaf forest zone (rarefying northwards and southwards). Larvae develop in living twigs of broadleaf trees, preferring hazels (Corylus avellana) in the Central Europe. Life-cycle 2 years. Adults, active from May to July, can be found and beaten from the host trees [▿]. More about biology of the species in the dedicated page.
Body length: 11 - 15 mm Life cycle: 2 years Adults in: May - July Host plant: Corylus avellana, Carpinus betulus, Ulmus spp., Juglans regia, Ostrya carpinifolia Distribution: Europe, Russia, Caucasus, Iran, Turkey
