[en] In 2000 and 2001, Trypodendron domesticum L. and T. signatum (F.) (Col.: Scolytidae) were one of the main causes of the depreciation of more than 1,600,000 m³ of standing beech trees, Fagus sylvatica L., in Wallonia (Southern Belgium). In 2001, a survey aiming at assessing the range of those indigenous ambrosia beetles, so far discreet and poorly studied, pointed out that they are omnipresent all over Wallonia. Two other scolytids and one lymexylonid (Col., Lymexylonidae) were also frequently caught, which made it possible to outline their regional distribution too.
