beetle - Cephaloon lepturides

beetle - Cephaloon lepturides
Cross Plains, Dane County, Wisconsin, USA

Size: ~12.4mm

Moved from Cephaloon.

Cephaloon lepturides Newman
This is almost certainly Cephaloon lepturides Newman; the only Cephaloon confirmed for WI to date. Cephaloon ungulare LeConte likely will be found in WI and it would take a close look at the pretarsus to confirm for absolutely certain, but the shape of the pronotum and configuration of the antennae, together with known abundance of C. lepturides make the identification reasonable.

thanks again, Dan
