Pityogenes chalcographus (Linnaeus) - (six-dentated bark beetle)
This bark beetle is common in dead branches or in the crowns of wind-felled spruce trees in central and northern Europe, but also attacks young and weakened standing trees, particularly during droughts. The galleries are arranged in a star-like pattern. There are usually 2 generations per year. The larvae overwinter in the bark of trees, the adults in litter on the ground. The adult is 2-2½ mm long, brown to black. Two "biological races" have been described from northeastern and Central Europe which do not interbreed.

The pronotum is covered with small knobs in its anterior part and has a middle keel. The elytra are lighter in colour and have longitudinal rows of poorly developed dots as well as 3 teeth each near the end. The teeth are more prominent in the males.
