Hi! As always, I love perusing your site. I found this guy on my screen and have no idea what it is. The screen mesh is 1/2”, so is body is about 1”. Pretty neat, whatever he is!

Ivory Marked Beetle

Hi Cindy,
Despite the yellow color of the markings, we believe this is an Ivory Marked Beetle or Four Marked Ash Borer,
Eburia quadrigeminata, or at least a member of the same genus.  Most of the individuals on BugGuide have lighter markings, though one mounted specimen from West Virginia has markings similar to your beetle.
