it intrigues me because it looks like Rhacognathus punctatus,
a rather nice palaearctic asopine that has an apparently vicariant sp. here in the Northeast

that would be very cool
I'll attempt to raise them.

My first thought upon finding it was actually Picromerus bidens, but that seems a bit off.

good thinking; P. b. was my first instinct, too...
please try to raise or at least follow the cycle in the wild

worth investigating; cool bug
try to find a match in the asopine section

Moved from True Bugs, Cicadas, Hoppers, Aphids and Allies.
