Chalepini, I presume - Octotoma plicatula
Juniata County, Pennsylvania, USA

Looks like Octotoma to me, but BG has no records farther north than North Carolina, so perhaps it's something else.

Moved from Beetles.

Moved tentatively, in accordance with Blaine's suggestion.

sure looks like Octotoma plicatula. Staines (2006) does not list it from PA, but he does list it from DC and MD, so PA is not unlikely.

A bit of additional info.
I found it on what I believe to be Trumpet Creeper (Campsis radicans)--which is listed as a host of O. plicatula here.

So... What do you suggest we do with this lousy image?

For now...
move to species and keep; if correct, it could be a new state record!!!!
