In Kerala region in south India is X.subscutellatus http://www.nbair.res.in/Cerambycidae/Xyl... Five years ago Francesco Vitali determined this species correctly, but NOAH wasn't change X.smei to X.subscutellatus.
Thank you Francesco for the information regarding the ID.
I think it is rather Xylotrechus subscutellatus Chevrolat, 1863.This species shows a wider yellow pattern and red legs.There are several similar species in India, but you can find some of them in this paper (with pictures) of Makihara et alii (2008): http://www.cerambycoidea.com/titles/maki...
Thank you Bayucca for the ID and the valuable information and thank you Nuwan . :))
I suggest that you take #2 as # 1.
Cerambycidae, Cerambycinae, Clytini, Xylotrechus sp. nd should be Xylotrechus smei. Very wide range and also very variable.http://www.nbaii.res.in/insectpests/Xylo...http://www.cerambycoidea.com/foto.asp?Id...http://www.biolib.cz/en/taxonimage/id367...http://www.biolib.cz/en/taxon/id309605/Obviously Xylotrechus stebbingi is a synonym.I hope that Francesco can confirm...
