Longicorn:  Tithoes confinis

Longicorn: Tithoes confinis

Dear Robin,
You are correct that this is a Longicorn in the family Cerambycidae.  We found a matching image on the PicClick website that is identified as
 Acanthophorus (Tithoes) confinis, and upon searching for that name, we found an individual for sale on Ebay for $450.00 which indicates this must not be a very common species.  The large mandibles indicates that this is a male, and we have an image of a female Tithoes confinis in our archives.  According to iNaturalist:  “Tithoes confinis can reach a length of 55–100 millimetres (2.2–3.9 in). This beetle has a massive hairy body and strong mandibles. The basic colour is dark brown. Pronotum bears two spines on both edges. Adults are nocturnal. Larvae feed on Cashew Nut Trees (Anacardium occidentale) and other trees belonging to the Anacardiaceae family.”

Lablab Bug

Lablab Bug

Dear Curious,
Introduced from Asia, the Lablab Bug or Kudzu Bug,
Megacopta cribraria, has become quite a nuisance in the South because of its large populations and because it is known to enter homes to hibernate.  According to BugGuide:  “may invade homes in large numbers and become a household pest(1); highly invasive species of mixed impact: it seems to prefer kudzu (a highly invasive and damaging plant), but can also become a serious pest of leguminous crops.”

Hey Bugman,
I flipped a rock and found this harvestman but I can’t seem to find any pictures that exactly match this species. Can you identify it?
Thanks!

Dear Ernie,
The small colorful moth is an Ailanthus Webworm, and your other image appears to be a dead female Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, based on the blue coloration on the hind wings, as depicted in this BugGuide image.

I am in south central Florida on the east coast. Nov 11th. My eggplant leaf was partially rolled up. I unrolled it and found this bug and tiny black eggs. I took a picture of this bug but can’t find any images on line that match. It was about 10 cm in length. It did not attempt to fly when I disturbed the leaf.
