Hi there. I would be so grateful if you could help me identify this beautiful creature. I found him in Turkey over the summer and need an accurate ID so that I can submit the picture to stock libraries. Many thanks indeed, lovely to know about your website as I often have critters to identify!
Signature: Yours bugfully,

Longhorned Borer Beetle

Longhorned Borer Beetle

This is a Longhorned Borer Beetle in the family Cerambycidae, most likely in the subfamily Lepturinae, the Flower Longhorns.  We have not had any luck with any matching images regarding the species classification.

Update:  We agree with Cesar Crash’s comment that this looks like Chlorophorus varius.

    If they act like our Megacyllene and Cotyclytus spp., they’re pretty cool because, despite it doesn’t look like a wasp in a picture, they can be mistaken for one in the field, because they’re very fast and act identical.
