Larvae of Euroleon polyspilus (Neuroptera, Myrmeleontidae) were found in coniferous-broadleaved forests at two localities in the Middle Sikhote-Alin Mountains (northern Primorsky Krai), including the Sikhote-Alin State Nature Reserve. These findings show that this species can live in a closed canopy forest with dense undergrowth. Their larvae build pitfall traps in any suitable substrate, including dry wood detritus accumulated at the bases of the Pinus koraiensis trunks and produced by beetles (adults or larvae).
