Longhorn Beetle at Garnwen

Martyn Hnatiuk sent me this photograph taken by Paul Parsons of the attractive longhorn beetle Rhagium bifasciatum which he found at Garnwen today. Other longhorns recorded by Martin and Paul locally in recent years have included Stictoleptura rubra, Arhopalus rusticus, Leiopus nebulosus & Rutpela maculata, all of which have been caught in or near light traps in Maesteg valley.
