A large longhorn beetle, I measure between 15 and 32 mm. My body is brown-black and my shell has a grainy texture.
At adult stage, I feed on bark. My larvae eat the aging wood of willows and poplars.
Like all species in the longhorn beetle family, I lay my eggs in the bark of trees, primarily willows and poplars. My larvae develop slowly over three to four years.
Where and when can you find me in the reserve ?
You can find me in dense leafy forests and woody wetlands dominated by willows, poplars, alders and silver birches.
When to spot me
The imagos emerge between March and April and you can see me roaming around the foliage of willow trees until October.
