Stinking Longhorn

Stenoderus suturalis


A slim 10 mm long longhorn or longicorn beetle with bright orange-red elytra and black thorax, head and legs. A narrow streak of black was seen along the inner elytral margins, extending from wing base to two-thirds of the length of the wing. A corresponding but slightly shorter stripe was also seen along the outer elytral margins. Glossy long antennae were segmented and held mostly forward, slightly flexed at the stape.
At a glance this beetle looked like a Lycid beetle and could well be mimicking one.


Spotted on a plant with loose umbels very much like Queen Anne's lace (Daucus species perhaps).
