Don Quixote & Sancho Panza
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|After the summer rain.|
Here we have one of the Borer Beetles, Family Cerambycidae. Is a Western Pine Sawyer, Ergates spiculatus. Males have longer antennae. The dark head and prothorax and the lighter elytra or wing covers are a good indication of the species. Large males will reach 2 1/4 inches. They are attracted to lights. The eggs are laid in dead pine and the larvae which take two or three years to mature, are generally found in trees dead more than a year. Adults sometimes visit flowers for pollen.
Following the advises I re-post the photo, focusing on Beetle.
