Pycnopsis brachyptera subsp. brachyptera
Beside the road on the way up to Magadzavane Lodge
Amazing photos! :D
Yes, that's a good idea ! Lovely photo, by the way. Such a great 3 D effect. I still have a thing or 2 to learn !!
I've updated the ID on my photo as well now:http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/218...(The ID had better be the same, as it was the same individual!)
Great ID Kate. Note the distance between the antennae tubercles. Ceroplesis antennae tubercles are raised and close together.
Yes, my photos are of the same individual.
thanks Kate... this is the one we saw together.
Same link as before, ID updated.
thanks bayucca... I'll stick with the 'safe side" as you suggest! Thanjks for all the work you put in...
Cerambycidae, Lamiinae, Ceroplesis sp.. Tricky to ID, I do not think it is Ceroplesis thunbergi (of which you will found many with a not trustable ID!).Same one as yours, but I am sceptic about the ID of Thunbergi:http://www.ispot.org.za/node/239582?nav=...Trusted Thunbergi:http://www.lamiinae.org/80v/index.php?pg...Calabrica:https://www.flickr.com/photos/33398884@N...http://www.ispot.org.za/node/198038?nav=...I am also not very happy with Aethiops and Capensis.http://www.ispot.org.za/node/225589?nav=...With Ceroplesis sp. you are definitely on the safe side!
Tightrope walker? :)) Interesting beetle!
