Longhorned Beetle - Phymatodes varius

Longhorned Beetle - Phymatodes varius
Marshall (Ozark Mountains), Searcy County, Arkansas, USA
April 11, 2011
Attracted to light.

Moved from Phymatodes.

[i]Phymatodes varius[\i] - hard to mistake for anything else in the eastern US. I'm a little surprised this wasn't in the Guide already, as the species can be quite common on dead oak branches.

thanks, Mervin & Ted, for another addition to the Guide!
i was also quite surprised that nobody's posted this beast earlier

Thanks, Ted
Moving to the newly created Guide page.

hmm... suspect Phymatodes varius (not yet in the Guide)
let's wait for the experts
Moved from Beetles.

Thanks yet again. Will wait patiently.
