[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Capnodis is a beetle genus very harmful to many trees, including fruit trees. Its larvae attack the heart of the trunk, and cause the tree to dry. I believe this is C. carbonaria, known to attack almond trees. In this case it was found in the heights of Mt. Hermon on the wild Prostrate Cherry, Cerasus prostrata (see my posting of last year, www.treknature.com/viewphotos.php?l=3&p=166088), also member of the Rosaceae family (could it be a different Capnodis species?). The beetle is about 30 mm long. Note the photonic-effect colors.
