Lepturinae? - Trypherus latipennis

Lepturinae? - Trypherus latipennis
Elkland, Missouri, Dallas County, Missouri, USA
June 2, 2002
Size: 6.0 mm
I'm pretty sure this is a Cerambicid - Lepturinae. It looks very similar to my friend Gary Griswold's posted Ulochaetes from the state of Washington. I overlooked this specimen in my "unidentified" drawer, but when I photographed it, the truncated elytra were evident. I think this species is much smaller than Gary's Ulochaetes.

Jerry--
for the future, i suggest posting all your beetle pix to the Coleoptera page rather than ID Request, and otherwise follow recommendations drafted by Chuck in this forum thread

Moved from ID Request.

Cantharidae
I didn't know any Cantharids had truncated elytra - thanks! I'll be looking for more of these next summer - this was the only one I've gotten since I moved to Missouri.

 
great many cantharids in a number of genera have short elytra
up to 150 spp. in our area alone -- mostly in the Malthininae, but in other subfams as well
