Chrysobothris sexsignata Rearing Material - Chrysobothris sexsignata

Chrysobothris sexsignata Rearing Material - Chrysobothris sexsignata
Bigelow Preserve, Somerset County, Maine, USA
Chrysobothris sexsignata rearing material. Twigs collected from small dead Balsam Fir (Abies balsamea) near tree line. Left to right emergence holes: Neoclytus leucozonus, Clytus marginicollis, Chrysobothris sexsignata. Interesting these three small beetles are competing for the exact same resource.

Are you a time traveler Mr. Frank? The date says December 1969
Very cool and interesting rearing work!

 
Date field for reared material
Hah! I have no idea why that happened. I purposefully left that field blank but somehow it defaulted to that date? Anyway, just deleted so hope that works (would have been 1 year old at the time). That dates suggest a two, or possibly even three, year life cycle?
