Shiny Cerambycid

IMG_1252Discovered on the floor of a Hemlock forest this weekend, this is Anthophylax cyaneus, a Cerambycid beetle with no common name.

With a distribution in the northeastern US, relatively little is known about its feeding habits, aside from the fact that the adults seem to visit flowers during May-July in hardwood forests.

That’s all, just wanted to share this pretty little thing that we know practically nothing about.
