July 19, 2009

Just a cool bug on the side of the highway in Ontario. I can't find in NAS guide (not too surprising there), hoping you might be able to do better.

from Doug Yanega: minnesotana or proxima - can't tell
Moved from Lepturini.

Moved from Beetles.

Moved from ID Request.

??Trigonarthris minnesotana??
any other angles? looks confusing this way

other possibility
No other angles, sorry... could it be a very small Pine Sawyer?

i dunno what Pine Sawyer is, sorry
i'm all but clueless about common names

Spine-neck Longhorn
Ergates spiculatus?

what do you mean?

Sorry man,
Common name: Pine Sawyer, aka Spine-neck Longhorn
Latin name for Pine Sawyer: Ergates spiculatus

i see, thanks -- but how would that be relevant to this submission??

Only in that it's my best gue
Only in that it's my best guess at what it might be.

sorry -- it didn't cross my mind... just in case you haven't see it, take a look at that beetle in the Guide, e.g. -- an all-brown behemoth many times the size of this one and bold as a cueball
