Orange Longhorn

Purpuricenus quadrinotatus


Longhorn of about 2.5cm length. Bright orange with black legs and antennae, and a black patch at the tip of the elytra. Perhaps a wasp mimic? Or just aposematic colouration?


Found after rain, in area with mainly farmland interspersed with patches of rainforest in the Atherton Tablelands.

Could this be a Net-winged Beetle mimic?
