Trichoferus campestris (Faldermann, 1835) 

Material examined.

Almaty Region: 2 km E of Saryozek [ Сарыөзек] (44°22'N, 78°01'E), 875 m a.s.l., 02 VI 2017 (23 VI 2017, ex cult.) 1♂, 1♀, from Ulmus  sp., leg. MW & LK; East Kazakhstan Region: Ust-Kamienogorsk [ Өскемен] (50°00'N, 82°33'E), 302 m a.s.l., 19 VI 2017, 2♂♂, 1♀, leg. MW.


Trichoferus campestris  is originally native to the southeastern Palaearctic region; however, it is now considered an invasive species that has rapidly increased its range in recent years (e.g. Grebennikov et al. 2010, Dascălu et al. 2013). It was discussed in a previous paper concerning the longhorn beetles of Tajikistan ( Kadyrov et al. 2016).

Two specimens were reared from thick elm branches Ulmus  sp. Additionally, a few imagines were attracted to artificial light sources during a warm night in a habitat of a city park.
