Hypothenemus eruditus Westwood, 1836
This bark beetle is widely distributed, mainly in subtropical and tropical regions. It breeds in the twigs and branches of a large variety of woody plants, including conifers and broad-leaved trees. Although it is often common, the damage caused on the trees is typically small. The adult beetle is only around 1 mm long, with females being larger than males. The colouration is dark brown to black, with rows of light-coloured scales on the elytra and part of the pronotum.
