Brachyleptura champlaini

Brachyleptura champlaini
Kennebunk, York County, Maine, USA
July 9, 2012
Size: 1 cm
Found on a sand ocean beach.

Moved tentatively
Moved from Brachyleptura.

Moved from Longhorned Beetles.

Definitely Brachyleptura
I'd say the choices are between B. champlaini and B. vagans.

Met: I think this is one of the variable colored Brachyleptura spp.
Poss B. vagans which are really variable in their orange macula. It
has the deep pronotal and elytral punctations and the bicolored
mid to apical antennomeres like most B's. Look at the guide pages
and see what you think until the experts chime in!
