Seriously, I have no idea what this is. I know it is a Long Beatle, but I can’t find it in my bug book. Anyone know what it is? Isn’t it pretty? It has a nice shiney red back. 😀
Updated to add: This information came from Donna Young.
Name: Stictoleptura erythroptera, no common name.
If it is that aforementioned kind, it is from Czech Republic, parts of Asia, Iran, parts of Europe. Oddly though, it is considered to be a rare beetle in its native areas.
If I find this bug again, I am going to keep it. 🙂
