There are not many large longhorn beetles in Beijing, but only about four of them are common.
01. Anoplophora glabripennis (Motschulsky, 1853)
This species is very common in urban areas, mostly in willows and elms. In other areas, it can damage many kinds of trees and cause invasion in Europe and North America.
02. Anoplophora chinensis (Forster, 1771)
Compared with the former, Beijing usually moves on willows. This species invaded Europe.
03. The difference between Anoplophora sinensis (left) and Anoplophora glabripennis (right). Pay attention to the shoulder granules.
04. Aromia bungii (Faldermann, 1835)
Peach and apricot are easily planted in urban parks. Adults often move in peach, apricot, elm and other trees. Adults can emit a unique taste when disturbed.
05, 06. Aegosoma sinicum White, 1853, is a common species of poplar and willow trees in Beijing. Small holes in poplar roadside trees are often caused by them.
The relatively common species of longhorn beetles and horned longhorn beetles in earlier years may be due to the fact that relatively thorough control is almost impossible. Cloud-spotted longicorn can be seen in Tongzhou area, probably brought in by seedlings in recent years.
