Size: ~12mm
I was photographing the lower individual (probably ♀) when the upper individual (probably ♂) arrived & stayed for a few seconds. I assume these are the same as &.


A pair of Callimoxys sanguini
A pair of Callimoxys sanguinicollis. They're a common species of long-horned beetles (Cerambycidae) in California. They're usually seen on Ceanothus flowers in the spring.

Callimoxis and Ceanothus
Any idea why they are associated with Ceanothus?

Thank you Dennis
for confirming the ID.

Genus was just revised.
This should now be considered Callimoxys fuscipennis.
