I was thinking this is one of the little beetles that bore into my cherry tree. It was found in disturbed soil beneath the tree that used to be an old wood pile.

Moved from Hylesinus.


genus Hylesinus, probably

Moved from Beetles.

looks like a borer alright, subfamily Scolytinae.

Thank you.
It was just the right size to fit in the holes I've found in the branches and trunk.
