Morimus funereus

.
Morimus funereus, the long-horned beetle, inhabits a relatively narrow geographical zone (forests of south-eastern Europe), and infests deciduous and coniferous trees.
Is a species of beetle in family Cerambycidae. It is found in Greece, Macedonia, Belgium, Croatia, Slovenia, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Moldova, Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Montenegro, Slovakia, Ukraine and Bosnia and Herzegovina. It prefers oaks and beech forests, but occasional occurrences of the species have been observed in coniferous forests.
The biology of the species is poorly known. Females lay eggs under the bark of logs and thick, dry branches. Larval development lasts 3-4 years; the larvae developed under the bark of dead tree and subsequently in the their wood. The larval stage lasts no longer than 2 years. The larvae pupate in spring or early summer. After completion of development, the larvae penetrate deeper into the wood, which prepares the room for metamorphosis. Adults appear autumn, but do not leave the pupal chamber until next spring. Adult activity begins quite early in April and continues until September. They have two maximum period of mating. Adults have longevity up to two years. Inability to fly leads to a small dispersion of population.
Suitable habitat is the forests over 45 years, which may be present dry trees, which ensures optimal conditions for development.
