First record in Italy of a Japanese cerambycid: Callidiellum rufipenne Motschulsky.

Abstract

The presence of Callidiellum rufipenne in Italy is reported for the first time. The pest was found on Juniperus communis in Pineta di San Vitale and was probably introduced into Italy in timber imported from East Asia. Information is presented on the geographic distribution, host trees, biology, ecology, morphology and hymenopterous parasitoids of the pest.
