Hi, This beautiful beetle flew into the picture as I was photographing the Washington State flower, Rhododendron macrophyllum, in the Olympic Mountains at an elevation of about 3500 feet. I took the picture May26, 2015. Any idea what it is?
We have identified your Flower Longhorn as Evodinus monticola vancouveri, a species with no common name, by matching it to an image posted to BugGuide. It really is a stunning beetle.
