Abstract

Several woodboring insects thrive in coffee plantations due to a surplus of host material as a result of pruning shade trees. The longhorn beetle Tetrasarus plato Bates (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) disperses and mates at the time this branch pruning is taking place. We describe some general facts of its life cycle and the sexual behavior under field and laboratory conditions.
