Oxypleurus nodieri is a rare Mediterranean longhorn beetle associated with a variety of pines.
The larvae feed in recently dead branches and pupate in shallow pupal cells built in sapwood. The
adults are nocturnal and can be found early in the spring.
The mounted beetle was collected by Z.Švec on pine (Pinus) logs at night in Amphisa (Greece).
The depicted living beetle was collected in NW Spain by M.Rejzek.
