Black-clouded Longhorn Beetle

14th June 2010, Monday

In June last year I found while walking in Brede High Wood a White-clouded Longhorn Beetle Mesosa nebulosa Red Data Book 3. I did a post on this site when I found it. Realising it was about the same time of year I decided to walk the same path again. This year I found a Black-clouded Longhorn Beetle Leiopus nebulosus. This beetle turns out to be common. The larva lives in dead wood and they both live in the tops of trees.
