Longhorn Beetle - Anelaphus cinereus

Longhorn Beetle - Anelaphus cinereus
Sanibel Island, Lee County, Florida, USA
April 5, 2017
Size: 13mm
This longhorn beetle is pretty unique looking and I can't find it on this site. An ID would be much appreciated.

Moved from ID Request.

check out Anelaphus cinereus
just a guess

is there a Fort Myers County in Fla?

Thanks, I belive that this is
what you said it is... I'm not sure what county Sanibel Island is in, but I will google it and fix it on my images.

thanks for the correction -- and for the addition, too!
so they named the county after you, eh?

this is our first image of this species, so let's keep it -- despite the flawed curation (BG discourages images of incorrectly pinned specimens)

by all means, keep an eye out for them -- we need photos of this fine beast for the guide
