Brachyta punctata punctata, a nominotypic subspecies occuring in Russia (East Siberia), Mongolia, North Korea, and China (Inner Mongolia), has been described from Irkutsk (Russia) environs as Pachyta puctata by Franz Faldermann in 1833 [▽]. The biology of this taxon is not sufficiently known, development with high probability in roots of living herbaceus plants. The adults, active in June - July, are diurnal and anthophilous [✧].

Body length:♂♂ 9.4 - 13.5 mm / ♀♀ 10.5 - 14.0 mm
Life cycle:unknown, probably at least 2 years
Adults in:June - July
Host plant:probably in roots of herbaceous plants
Distribution:Russia (East Siberia), Mongolia, North Korea, and China (Inner Mongolia)

The depicted mounted beetles were collected 20 km W of Erdenet (Эрдэнэт; 1434 m a.s.l., Orkhon Province, North Mongolia) on July 4-6, 2004.
