June 7, 2010
Size: ~ 8-10 mm
I was thrilled to find this presumed small cerambycid near the Russian River, but I can't seem to find a match in BG. I have a couple of other pics from other angles if that would help, but this was the best.

Moved from Lepturini.

thanks v! A somewhat variably-marked little devil...

intraspecific color variation in the lepturines can easily drive one crazy. sometimes i just hear them mf'ers gloating at my desperation.

we'll figure it out, Ken.

must be something in their horoscope. mine's always fine.

Moved from Beetles.
