Insecta / Coleoptera / Cerambycidae / Lamia textor

The Lamie Tisserand or Lamia textor (named by Linnée in 1758) is the only European species belonging to the Lamia kind. It is a large Coléoptère, Xylophage, of the family of the Cerambycidae, with slow displacement on the trees, sometimes faster on the ground, which goes much more than it does not fly. Its larva develops in the Deadwood certain leafy trees (deaths, or partially died in phase of senescence), by leaving there exits of broad galleries which are one of the most obvious signs of its presence. It is a species which locally seems become rare (or extinct) of many areas, and considered as threatened.

super sharpness with good details of the beetle
greeting lou

Hello Fil and welcome among TN members!
Great to see so nice and beautiful Cerambycidae beetle. I like profile view and very nice sharpness. I believe that light was strong, but you kept colours in very good way.
Note is also very informative :)
All the best from Poland,

Una foto con notable textura, nitidez y naturalidad!!!
