Fuzzy Gray & Orange Beetle?
Thu, May 14, 2009 at 3:24 PM
I found this crawling on the back of my neck. I don’t know if it flew in or crawled up. It is fuzzy and gray with orange coloring. It is about 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch long. It is sitting on my dustpan and I just put it outside so it could go on it’s merry way. I can’t find any similar pictures online and was hoping you could tell me what it is.

Unknown Longicorn

Elm Borer

Hi Pamela,
We don’t recognize your Longhorned Borer Beetle or Longicorn in the family Cerambycidae. We haven’t the time to research this at the moment, but perhaps one of our faithful readers knows the identity. We will also try to contact Eric Eaton for his opinion.

Update:
Hi Bugman:
This looks like an Elm Borer Beetle ( Saperda tridentata).  Regards
Karl
