Dear Bugman,
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.
Any ideas?

Hi Aubrey,

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
Have a great holiday.
