Subject: Long Horn Beetle?
July 28, 2014 4:35 pm
Found this outside my house and would like to know a little more about it. Bit of a Asian Longhorn beetle scare round here and I know this is not one but now my kids and I have caught the bug (pun intended) and want to know what it is.
Thanks for time!
This pretty beetle is a Red Banded Pine Borer, Stictoleptura canadensis, and according to bugGuide: “The normal colouration of Stictoleptura c. canadensis (Olivier) is with banded antennae (male and female). Rarely the antennae are all black.… Christopher Majka, 31 January, 2013.”
