Dear Bugman,
Thank you so much for your fantastic site!
This rather large beetle landed on my husband’s lap this evening and nearly sent him out the window!
We’d like to know if it is a friend or foe.
It is a very mild summer’s day in Redmond, Washington State ~ 65 degrees, sea level. We live out of town in a heavily wooded area – both deciduous and evergreen trees.
Thank you in advance for any assistance you can give!

Flower Longhorn

Hi Holly,
We believe we have correctly identified your Flower Longhorn in the subfamily Lepturinae as
Ortholeptura valida, a species with no common name.  The range, the west coast of North America, as indicated on BugGuide, seems correct.
