6091 I just found this insect on my clematis vine. It is 10:30pm, still very hot here in Kamloops. The body is close to 4 cm. I would appreciate identification. Thank you. Lynne
This is a long-horned wood-boring beetle (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae), possibly Ergates spiculatus, known as the timberworm -see https://tinyurl.com/ybxpjl8b for images and more detailed information. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
