  1. Clearly, very misleading clothing ;) Posted 3 months ago
    1. Truth. Although they are associated with pines (their larvae bore tunnels in them), so I don't know why it was flirting with flowers! Posted 3 months ago

''Monochamus scutellatus'', commonly known as the white-spotted sawyer or spruce sawyer, is a common wood-boring beetle found throughout North America. It is a species native to North America.

Adults are large-bodied and black, with very long antennae; in males, they can be up to twice the body length, but in females they are only slightly longer than body length. Both sexes have a white spot on the base of the wings, and may have white spots covering the wings. Both males and females.. more
