I found this insect in the garden today in Wales (2nd June 2011).
Can you please identify it for me?
Signature: Thank you very much.

Leptura maculata, the Spotted Longhorn

In anticipation of a short trip away from the office, we are preparing a series of images to post in our absence.  Your letter will go live next week.  This is a Longhorn Beetle in the family Cerambycidae, sometimes called the Longicorn Beetles, and we are nearly certain it is Leptura maculata, which we initially identified on the Garden Safari website and verified on the BioLib website where it is called the Spotted Longhorn.
