Callidium sp.? - Callidium texanum

Callidium sp.? - Callidium texanum
Columbia, Boone County, Missouri, USA
April 1, 2006
Size: 1 cm
There were quite a few of these on a cedar tree that had been cut down in a glade. Some were laying eggs in the wood.

Moved from Callidium.

Probably Callidium texanum...
The most common species of the genus in Missouri, and the only one that breeds in juniper

Moved from Longhorned Beetles.

Relatively certain that genus is the only one of the metallic longhorns east of the Rockies with that overall body shape. Moving to genus page for now.
