This was seen in my driveway on 7-23-2017 in so the st florida. Can you tell me what it is? Thank you
This is either a Sculptured Pine Borer or a Southern Sculptured Pine Borer, two similar looking, related species that are both found in Florida. For more images of the Sculptured Pine Borers in the genus Chalcophora, see BugGuide. We have not seen an image of a female Sculptured Pine Borer with her ovipositor visible.
