Long-horned beetle - Tenomerga cinerea

Long-horned beetle - Tenomerga cinerea
Auburn, Lee County, Alabama, USA
July 20, 2007
A long-horned beetle, perhaps Anelaphus sp.

Moved from Tenomerga.

This is a Reticulated Beetle in the family Cupedidae. This one is in the genus Tenomerga. Great find!

Cupedid, I believe
This looks more like Tenomerga cinereus, a Cupedid.

You beat me!
By just seconds!

Not the first time.
That's not the first time that's happened to me. In fact, there was one time when one of my comments loaded very slowly...I think I was trying to post a comment to one page at the exact same time as someone else:-)

Thanks, Will and Nick. You are right on!
