[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The red neck support (Stictoleptura titles; there early Leptura titles, Corymbia titles and Aredolpona titles), also red neck support or common support beetle mentioned, belongs to the family of the support beetles (Cerambycidae) and to the Unterfamilie of the narrow supports (Lepturinae). The beetles become ten to twenty millimeters long. With the sexes there are strong differences in the colouring and shape (Sexualdimorphismus). The red neck supports are to be confounded easily with representatives of similar kinds. Females [work on] the Flügeldecken (Elytren) and that neck sign of the female are bright red-brown, the head are black. The feelers are centrallong and weakly sawed. Male the colouring of the males varies. The Flügeldecken are ocher yellow and that neck sign are totally or partly black. The feelers are clearly more strongly sawed. The males are smaller and slimmer than the more compact females. Females on dead wood red neck supports nourish themselves of Pollen and bloom parts like the dust containers, stamps or petals of dolden or Korbblütlern. The day-active beetles fly from June to Septembers. The animals are to be found on forestnear meadows and on clearing on dolden and basket blooms. Furthermore one can finding it on Totholz such as stumps of resinous woods. The circulation area extends over far parts of Europe (in Great Britain the kind is only locally represented), North Africa and Asia to Siberia. In North America red neck supports were brought in and represent Neozoen thus there. They are to be found frequent both in the low country and in the mountains. (Wikipedia)
