Hi again! This little longhorn beetle flew in to visit me as I returned home this morning. I knew it was a longhorn beetle, so I sat and stared at tons of pics at Bug Guide. Am I right? Thanks again!
We agree with the genus but not the species. We believe this is an Ivory Marked Beetle, Eburia quadrigeminata (See BugGuide), not the closely related Lesser Ivory Marked Beetle, Eburia mutica (See BugGuide), which has less distinct markings.
