Xylotrechus nauticus - Rusticoclytus nauticus
Bonny Doon, Back Ranch Rd area, Santa Cruz County, California, USA
September 29, 2011
Size: 11mm
I found this in the cab of my truck on a day so foggy everything was wet. I put it in a paper bag, and wondered why it didn't chew it's way out, then transferred it to a small older cardboard box and finally got to Photograph it this evening, where it hardly moved, but had hold of the box to such a degree I was afraid of breaking it if I forced it to a different position.
