5734 Good morning, my name is Pat, I found this little critter in a pail that had a bit of water on the bottom. I live in Qualicum Beach BC, Vancouver Island on 2.5 acres surrounded by plenty of huge cedar, some white pine and fir trees. The pail was on my deck. Kind Regards, Pat
This is a flower longhorn beetle (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae; subfamily Lepturinae); it looks like Ortholeptura valida, see http://tinyurl.com/z7vdzsx for an image. This is not a pest species. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
