An Elderberry Borer?
Hi Bugman,
We saw this beetle flying across our garden. It’s alive and well, also very active and colourful! It appears to be an Elderberry long-horn beetle or Elderberry Borer. It was caught in Harbour Grace, Newfoundland, Canada. Do you know if it’s native to this region? Great website! Thanks,
Steve

Hi Steve,
This is an Elderberry Borer, Desmocerus palliatus, and it is a local species for your locale.
