grey and black Longhorned Beetle - Hyperplatys aspersa

grey and black Longhorned Beetle - Hyperplatys aspersa
Fort Bragg, Cumberland County, North Carolina, USA
May 21, 2005
Size under half an inch. I browsed the beetle quickly, so may have missed this one if it's already here.

Moved
Moved from Hyperplatys.

Hyperplatys aspersa
I agree, Hyperplatys aspersa is very likely correct, they have a size range from 4 to 7 millimeters or so.

Nope, new one:-)
This is a new species for Bugguide. Yanega's book includes it, but I can't recall the name. Can you run this image through some kind of enhancing program? The spots are more obvious in life, right?:-)

 
sharpened
I sharpened the image....didn't improve too much, but a little better.

 
Added guide
Only two spp. in east, this appears to be H. aspersa.

 
not really
but that's just because it's a fairly small long-horned beetle, so the spots aren't easy to see. I'll see what I can do about the image this week sometime to enhance it.
