Subject: Longhorn Beetle?
Geographic location of the bug: Northern Virginia
Time: 08:26 PM EDT
Your letter to the bugman: I found this crawling in a stack of lumber in the woods here in Northern Virginia. I thought it might be a type of longhorn beetle, but couldn’t find any that matched the coloring pattern. Any thoughts? Thanks!
