    Flower Longhorn Beetle - (Stenelytrana emarginata)

    Patient and persistent attempts to lure this species in front of a camera are usually rewarded .

    Staff Writer (6/24/2015): The long antennae of this species and its bright orange elytra make it a lovely specimen to photograph. They are usually found on flowers, but are fond of fruits and other juicy sweet foods. They can also be lured by placing special fermenting baits outside. Adults are most active from mid-spring though late summer. Larvae feed on decaying elm and beech wood.

    BUGFINDER allows for a quick search of the Insect Identification database by selecting primary color, secondary color, number of legs and the territory / state in question. If only one color is present on your insect, select it again as its SECONDARY color. Remember that the more details you can offer, the better your chances of finding a match. As a rule of thumb, six legs are typical for most insects whereas spiders generally have eight legs.
