I just looked him up. That's some resource! Not very searchable unfortunately. I'll crack it soon - the search is half the fun. Thanks again.

Thanks Lenny. I'll check for ID's when this 40℃ heat goes away. ( I won't try to say 'nigrpfaciaticollis' :-) )

Flat face,so it's Laminae.
Could be Mesosa sp.

A lovely thought Martin. We do need some exercise though.

They are all cerambycids. You guys so need a UV light setup and you can collect these photos at home with a tripod and a coffee in the other hand.
