Clytus arietis is one of the most common European longhorn beetles frequently visiting flowers. It is a broadly polyphagous species in deciduous trees and occasionally also in conifers.
The living beetle was collected in Broumy (Central Bohemia, Czech Republic). The mounted specimen is a very unusual form of Clytus arietis, which was collected by our friend Jakub Rolčík in NE Turkey.
Collected by M.Hoskovec and J.Rolčík.
