|This is a fairly small bark beetle (though larger than Scolytus multistriatus) often found underneath the bark of Elm. Scolytus scolytus is another species that forms distinctive galleries remaining evident for many years. This dead female, still in the gallery, died after having laid her eggs. Females can often be found in such situ, but identification of this group is difficult. This dead female was found at Hare Hill Wood near Kersall in early March 2010.|
