Sampling was carried out on 40 oaks (Quercus robur) in the vicinity of Larvik municipality in southern Norway. Sampling was conducted with flight intercept traps: 20x40cm windows with a funnel below leading to a vial containing ethylene glycol, water (4:1 mixture) and a drop of detergent used as a surfactant.

All beetles were identified to the species level following the taxonomy of The Norwegian Biodiversity Information Centre (
