Your letter to the bugman:  Hi I just want to share this pic of what I believe is an Elderberry Borer. I snapped a pic of this beauty on my back balcony July 20th 2018 here in St. John’s Newfoundland.

Elderberry Borer

Dear S Balwar,
The Elderberry Borer,
Desmocerus palliatus, surely is a beautiful beetle and we are thankful you submitted your image.  BugGuide still indicates it is “Uncommon” and notes it is found in “swampy areas and edges of streams with host plant.”
