Pterolophia jugosa, a species of deciduous forests of North-East Asia occuring in Russian Far East, Japan and Korea, has been described from Japan as Praonetha jugosa by Henry Walter Bates in 1873 [▽]. Larvae of P. jugosa develop in dying/freshly dead branches of deciduosu trees. Young larvae feed subcortically creating longitudinal in sapwood impressed galleries filled with fine frass. The larvae of later instars enter the heartwood and after the second overwintering bore longitudinal gallery with a pupal cell at its end with frass filled exit corridor (up to the bark). Life-cycle 2 years, adults can be beaten from the host trees during summer months [✧].
Body length: 8 - 12 mm Life cycle: 2 years Adults in: June - August Host plant: polyphagous in deciduous trees (e.g. Ulmus, Fagus, Populus, Morus, Castanea, Citrus) Distribution: Russian Far East (Kuril Islands - Kunashir), Japan, North Korea
The depicted male (10 mm) beetle was collected in Grozovoe (Грозовое) settlement environs on Cape Ivanovsky (N43°50′23″ E145°24′40″; Kunashir/Кунаши́р island, Kuril Islands, Yuzhno-Kurilsky district, Sakhalin region, Russia) on June 12, 2011.
