Flower Longhorn - Lepturobosca chrysocoma

Flower Longhorn - Lepturobosca chrysocoma
White Pine Creek, Sanders County, Montana, USA
July 26, 2005
Flower is Dogbane (I think).

Moved from Lepturobosca.

Thanks for the help.

moved - why not to species page?

Two opinions - move it!
Maybe it seemed to you, that both were speaknig of different species - but the weren´t:
Generic name is Lepturobosca, Cosmosalia is a subgenus of it.

Ohh, I also hate all these recent name changes in longhorns - difficult to see throuh!


Reminds us of
our beetle and the flower does look like Spreading Dogbane, Apocynum androsaemifolium

Looks just like Cosmosalia chrysocoma that I have seen in Maine. Don't know if that species occurs in Montana but the genus is probably right.
