Flower Longhorn - Brachyleptura circumdata

Flower Longhorn - Brachyleptura circumdata
Petersham, Worcester County, Massachusetts, USA
June 23, 2005
Size: 7mm

It reminds me of
This one that I submitted recently. Unfortunately nobody ID'ed it yet.

 
Similar
to yours, except yours has yellow and black spotted antennae.

 
SIze?
How big was it? It looks like Brachyleptura circumdata which is one of the smaller lepturines. I suppose it could be Leptura plebeja (see your photo 25909 - I'm pretty sure on the ID for that one) but L. plebeja is bigger and has a more tapering rear end.

 
It was on the small size
About 7mm, and it does look like the other pictures here. Thanks for all the help again, Frank.
