Where does the Callidium live?

Callidium is a genus of beetles that belongs to the family of longhorn beetles, or cerambycids.

There are about 50 species of Callidium, which are mostly found in North America, Europe, and Asia.

They live in various habitats, such as forests, meadows, and gardens, where they feed on dead or decaying wood.

Some species are considered pests, as they can damage wooden structures or furniture.

Callidium beetles have flat bodies and long antennae.

They are usually brown, black, or gray, with various patterns or spots on their elytra (wing covers).

Some species have metallic or iridescent colors.

They are active during the day and can fly well.

They mate in the spring or summer, and the females lay eggs in cracks or holes in wood.

The larvae are wood-borers, which means they tunnel inside the wood and feed on it.

They can take several years to complete their development, depending on the species and the quality of the wood.

The adults emerge from the wood through round holes.

Here are some examples of Callidium beetles:
  • Callidium violaceum: This species is also known as the violet longhorn beetle or the purpleheart woodborer.
    It is native to North America, where it occurs from Canada to Mexico.
    It is a pest of hardwood trees, especially maple, birch, and beech.
    It has a metallic purple or blue color, with yellow spots on the elytra.
    It can grow up to 25 mm long.
  • Callidium frigidum: This species is also known as the alpine longhorn beetle or the spruce borer.
    It is native to Europe and Asia, where it occurs in mountainous regions.
    It is a pest of coniferous trees, especially spruce, fir, and pine.
    It has a black or dark brown color, with white or yellow bands on the elytra.
    It can grow up to 20 mm long.
  • Callidium aeneum: This species is also known as the bronze longhorn beetle or the bronze woodborer.
    It is native to Asia, where it occurs in China, Japan, and Korea.
    It is not a serious pest, but it can damage ornamental trees, such as cherry, plum, and peach.
    It has a metallic bronze or copper color, with black spots on the elytra.
    It can grow up to 15 mm long.
