Spotted longhorn - Heterachthes quadrimaculatus
Fairfield, Wayne County, Illinois, USA
July 18, 2007
Attracted to my garage light at night.

Moved from Cerambycinae.

...Heterachthes quadrimaculatus. Breeds in Carya spp. (hickory).

From Yanega we would have picked
fig 167 Heterachthes, and from the Cerambycid catalog we might have chosen quadrimaculatus, see here. It will be interesting to see what Guy will say.
