Callicera erratica - male

Callicera erratica - Male
Fews Ford, Eno River State Park, Orange County, North Carolina, USA
April 6, 2007
Size: 11 mm
A lateral view. (The yellowish dots are pollen grains from deciduous and coniferous trees--ubiquitous at this time of year.) Fell out of a tree above a picnic table on a cold day as I stood there--at total fluke finding it!
Length was measured by photographing adjacent to a scale (was 11 mm--corrected from 12 mm 3/18/18).
Images updated 3/18/18.
