Species Oncideres cingulata - Twig Girdler
Branch Girdling by Oncideres cingulata (Coleoptera; Cerambycidae) and Relative Host Quality of Persimmon, Hickory, and ElmBy Marlin E. Rice
Annals of the Entomological Society of America 88(4): 451-455, 1995
ABSTRACT: Female Oncideres cingulata (Say) girdle living branches of deciduous trees with their mandibles and lay eggs in the freshly killed host. Girdled branches of American elm, Ulmus americana; bitternut hickory, Carya cordiformis; persimmon, Diospyros virginiana; and shagbark hickory, Carya ovata, were collected in Missouri and examined. Branches from persimmon and elm were divided into 2 categories: (1) persimmon and virgin persimmon (branches from trees that had not been previously girdled); and (2) elm and elm stub (branches that had the terminal section girdled during the previous year).

Natural history observations on Tetraopes and other Cerambycidae (Coleoptera) from the Great Plains ecosystemBy Marlin E. Rice
Journal of the Kansas Entomological Society 61(4): 412- 419, 1988
ABSTRACT: New biological information concerning host-plant associations and/or significant geographical distributions are presented for 16 species of Cerambycidae from the Great Plains ecosystem in the following genera: Ataxia, Crossidius, Dectes, Ecyrus, Mecas, Megacyllene, Oberea, Sternidius, Tetraopes, and Urgleptes. Season-long phenological data are presented for two sympatric four-eyed milkweed beetles, Tetraopes femoratus and Tetraopes tetrophthalmus. The distribution of Tetraopes pilosus is influenced by soil type and characterizations of the habitat are given based upon soil associatio
