 small Cerambycid - Haplidus testaceus

small Cerambycid - Haplidus testaceus
Dog Canyon, Otero County, New Mexico, USA
March 30, 2010
Size: 8 - 10 mm ?

Moved tentatively
Moved from Haplidus.

from Dan Heffern:
"I can't be 100% sure, because the angle is bad, but based on location, size, and time of year, I bet it is a Haplidus, either H. testaceus (more likely) or H. laticeps (less likely). Both species probably occur in W. Texas or S. New Mexico (despite literature). The antennae have no apparent spines, which rule out most, if not all, of the elaphidionines. Since it is an early spring species, it is not encountered by the summer crowds."

Moved from ID Request.

any chance to get more shots?
at least a plain dorsal...

I'll try for more
they were too high up to get a good dorsal

i'm not trying to make you break your neck --
i just like the beetle... you don't see it every day, Bob :)
