Anelaphus villosus, female
Thank you!

You're very welcome!
Glad to help...

Anelaphus villosus, female
The short spines on the antennomeres separate this from Elaphidion. The relative lengths of antennomeres III and IV and the nature of the pubescence of the elytra help separate this from A. parallelus (recently sunk into villosus as a synonym). More work to be done on these two taxa...


Moved from ID Request. Not Elaphidion mucronatum.
