Xyleborus spathipennis

Biology: 

Wood, 1982: This species occurs in wet lowland forests in almost any souring log that is in contact with the soil. The elongate gallery system branches and rebranches and anastomoses with other systems. Few other Scolytidae tolerate the wet souring conditions where this species breeds.
