This beetle is a common species present in most of Europe and in the Near Eastern countries such as Caucasus, Transcaucasia, and Turkey, where they mainly inhabit mountainous coniferous forests.[1]

Head, antennae and pronotum are black in both sexes, while elytra are reddish-brown in the female and yellowish-brown in the male.[2]

The adults grow up to 8–13 millimetres (0.31–0.51 in) and can be encountered from May through August, completing their life cycle in 2–3 years.[1]

The larvae develop at the expense of various species of conifers, mainly within dead wood of Pinus sylvestris and Picea abies. The adults visit flowers for nectar and pollen.
