Caught this guy running across a leaf but not sure the type. Has orange running down both sides.
Signature: Thanks Guys
You are correct. This is a Longhorn Beetle in the family Cerambycidae, and furthermore, it is one of the Flower Longhorns in the subfamily Lepturinae. We believe, based on photos posted to BugGuide, that it is Strangalepta abbreviata, a species without a common name. BugGuide indicates: “Larvae feed in various decaying conifers and hardwoods” and “Adults are attracted to many wildflowers”.
