Stenurella melanura

Stenurella melanura is a beetle species of flower longhorns belonging to the family Cerambycidae, subfamily Lepturinae.

S. melanura in copula

This beetle is widespread in most of Europe, in the East Palearctic ecozone, in Oriental ecozone and in the Near East.

Larvae develop in rotten wood of deciduous and coniferous trees, especially Castanea sativa.

The adults grow up to 6–10 millimetres (0.24–0.39 in) and can be encountered from May through September, completing their life cycle in two years. The head, pronotum and abdomen are black, while elytra are reddish with a black colored tip. They are very common flower-visitors, feeding on pollen and the nectar.
