Xyleborus intrusus

Biology: 

Wood, 1982: This species attacks the base of recently killed, standing trees in which decay is well under way, at or near the ground level. The gallery system is evidently similar to that of volvulus. Rabaglia et al. 2006: As it is currently recognized, this species has the most westerly distribution of the native Xyleborus. It is one of the few species of the genus restricted to conifers.
