Le Longicorne des Champs

Hi Kelly,
In French speaking Canada, this pretty Longhorned Borer Beetle is called Le Longicorne des champs, but alas in the U.S. it has no common name.  It is known scientifically as
Clytus ruricola, though it might also be a closely related species.  You can see BugGuide for additional information like that the “Larvae feed on decaying hardwoods, especially Maple Acer species.
