7-18 mm. Occurs in Central and Southern Europe, North Africa, Turkey and TransCaucasus. Not uncommon in Hungary. Larvae feed under the bark of trunks and branches of juniper (Juniperus communis), pupating in the heartwood in summer of their second year. Overwinter as adults. One of the earliest longhorn beetles to emerge in spring, found on the foodplant in March and April. Attack causes swelling of the branch and usually death of the branch above the attack.
