Hiya All.
Blimey where does the time go eh:rolleyes::lol:

Found this critter, a first for me, initially I thought it to be a ' Wasp Beetle ' but no, looked at several shots of ' Longhorn Beetles ' & manage to get completely befuddled :lol: so I stuck a pin in & plumped for ' Leptura quadrifasciata ' ???

This critter was incredibly fast running hither & thither only stopping for a second or so to insert its Ovipositor in a suitable crack in the wood.

Cheers for now
Mark

Nice captures Mark. Think it is Strangalia Maculata. Look at the hind legs, second joint, the spurs that stick out.

Hiya Brian, Skylab, Bill, Sugarman,

Many thanks for your kind words & comments, still a part timer I'm afraid I still got lots to do here so my shooting is taking a back seat.

Skylab,
I did wonder if it were the Strangalia Maculata but the markings just don't seem right. I've sent some shot, to Kendall Bioresearch Services in the hopes they can gimme a positive ID, fingers crossed & watch this space eh.

Cheers for now
Mark

Hiya all,

Just had a very quick reply to my ID query from a Dr D A Kendall BSc PhD of
Kendall Bioresearch Services.

Copy of e-mail
Leptura (= Strangalia) aurulenta - legs and basal segments of antennae red, front and hind margins of thorax densely fringed with dense yellow pubescence (in L. quadrifasciata, legs and basal segments of antennae black, thorax not densely fringed with yellow pubescence).

Interesting observation - rare species, well worth recording. Could you send me precise date, location (place & post code) and your full name, plus description of general surroundings of house/garden (rural, suburban, etc., nearby woodland, farmland, etc.). Could I keep copies of the photos as voucher images for the sighting/record and possible future use on my web site? Thanks.

Please see revised details of insect identification services on the home page of
my web site (click on box near bottom of page) - there is a fee for all services.

Great shots Mark, and looks like a great find too by the email reply you got.

Just had a quick look at his website - bit expensive for insect ID's though isnt it, but a great website.
