I found this very small beetle (less than 1/2 inch body length) on May 15th.
I think I had identified it via Google six weeks ago, but I have forgotten what
I’d found and can no longer seem to relocate it on the web.
It seems like it was a “dotted longhorned beetle” or some variation.
We actually quickly and quite fortuitously identified it in about ten seconds on BugGuide as Hyperplatys aspersa.
Thank you so much, Daniel.
I was trying to describe it in my little blog for our grandchildren.
If interested, it is at www.frombluebirdstoturtles.blogspot.com
Have a great holiday.
