Banded Alder Borer

Dear Michelle,
We wish your photo had a higher resolution, but we are posting it anyway because this is our first report this year of a Banded Alder Borer,
Rosalia funebris, one of the loveliest North American beetles.  You can find much information on the Banded Alder Borer in our archives by using our search engine.
