Globally distributed species

Xyleborinus saxesenii is one of the smallest ambrosia beetles in the Holarctic zone (North America, Europe, Asia), but it is also one of the most ecologically successful ones. Native to the vast area of Eurasia, it has been introduced to most temperate and boreal regions of the world, including very remote islands such as New Caledonia or Hawaii (Wood & Bright, 1992). X. saxeseni has an essentially unlimited range of host tree species, including conifers.
