    Picture of Notch-Tipped Flower Longhorn Beetle
    Staff Writer (1/25/2014): The Notch-Tipped Flower Longhorn Beetle has long antennae ('horns') and feeds on pollen from a variety of flowers. They have a wide carapace ('shoulder') at the neck that becomes narrower towards the tip of the abdomen ('tail').

    Larva from this species of beetle bore deep into decayed wood and remain there over winter. They feed on the rotting wood and pupate in spring, becoming adults that fly, just in time for blooming flowers.

    Adults are often seen in gardens, meadows and wood in summer and are active until late fall.
