Long-horned Beetle - Styloleptus biustus Long-horned Beetle - Styloleptus biustus

Moved tentatively... looks like you've had it before --
...it just wasn't clear from these less-than-conclusive angles

Moved from Acanthocinini.

Moved, pending a conclusive submission of same from Bob
Moved from Beetles.

good guess, but those are tough... how about Leptostylus?
will ask Dr Thomas to check it out, but the angle is a bit awkward

 
Leptostylus
Looks alot like L. transversus with the broad postmedial transverse
white fascia and what look to me like dorsal tubercles on the
pronotum. Dr. Thomas still needs to look at it.

 
Looks more
like Styloleptus biustus to me, but a straight-on dorsal view is really needed to ne sure.
