Abstract: The mating behavior and characteristics of Monochamus alternatus adults in cages were observed over a 24 h period. Results showed that the mating behavior consisted of two steps:1) the female got close to and moved around the male,and 2) the male caught the female and mated. Mating behavior rhythm within 24 h consisted of two mating peaks at 10∶00-14∶00 and 18∶00-24∶00. Little to no mating behavior occurred outside of these periods. Mating behavior revealed that multiple mating existed universally. Individuals with a mating frequency of 2 times (or more) accounted for 77.5% of all experimental insects,and mating lasted 50 s each time. Apart from the normal male-female mating,male-male mating and female-female mating occurred. In addition,two males sometimes fought for the right of mating with the same female.[Ch,1 fig. 1 tab. 15 ref.]
