New host plants of Delagrangeus (s.str.) angustissimus angustissimus Pic, 1892 (Cerambycidae: Cerambycinae)

Abstract :

Surveys for the present study were carried out the cypress trees of Cupressus arizonica Greene and Cupressus sempervirens Linnaeus (Cupressaceae) especially on the roadsides in Kahramanmaraş province and its districts. Thus, we have discovered new host plants, Cupressus arizonica Greene and Cupressus sempervirens Linnaeus (Cupressaceae), for Delagrangeus (s.str.) angustissimus angustissimus Pic (Cerambycidae: Cerambycinae) from Kahramanmaraş province of South Turkey. Hereby, updated host plant associations of the longhorn beetle are also presented in the text. Moreover, the bark beetles Phloeosinus armatus Reitter on or in Cupressus arizonica and Phloeosinus aubei (Perris) on or in Cupressus sempervirens with the longhorn beetle Delagrangeus angustissimus angustissimus Pic were also determined. All three beetle species, Delagrangeus angustissimus angustissimus Pic (Cerambycidae), Phloeosinus armatus Reitter (Scolytidae) and Phloeosinus aubei (Perris) (Scolytidae) are recorded for the first time from Kahramanmaraş province.
