Hi there,
I found this bug on our tree in the backyard. It seems to be a bumelia borer, however it has orange-black banded antennae. I could not find another picture like this on the Internet. Is it the same bug?

Dear Rachel,
This Longicorn really does resemble the Bumelia Borer.  We first found a matching image on FlickR that was identified as
Litopus latipes, and we verified that identification on Biolib and iSpot.
