Patient and persistent attempts to lure this brightly colored species in front of a camera are usually rewarded.
The long antennae of this species and its bright orange elytra make it a lovely Flower Longhorn Beetle to photograph. They are usually found on flowers, but are fond of fruits and other juicy, sweet foods. They can be lured to an area by placing special fermenting baits outside. Adults are most active from mid-spring though late summer. Larvae feed on decaying elm and beech wood.
