Bumelia Borer

Hola Sergiortc,
This Longhorned Borer Beetle looks to us like the Bumelia Borer, Plinthocoelium suaveolens, a species found in warmer portions of the United States according to BugGuide.  Insects have no respect for international borders, and the range might be greater than in indicated on BugGuide.  We suspect this is the same species or a closely related species.

  1. Thank you for your input. I agree with you, if it is not the exact species is a closely related one.

    They are beautiful, but a little intimidating with their fast movements and suden flights.

    Sorry for the typos in my first mesage. I’ll try to avoid them in the future.
