Hello, we were intrigued by this bug spotted on our cedar tree. We wondered what it might be. It’s about an inch long, it’s a dull olive green and has four faint black spots.
We think it’s a beetle because of the elytra?
Cheers and thank you!

Hi, Daniel:
Sure, this is a “Linden Borer,” Saperda vestita.  Nice beetle!
