Thats about as far as my knowledge goes on this one I'm afraid. On a forestry track near Glyn-neath if that's any help with habitat.

Nice one Mark. This is Rhagium mordax.

Barry - you beat me to it by 10 minutes! Mark, there's a useful article on Longhorn Beetles in British Wildlife vol 18, No.6, Aug 2007 if you can get hold of a copy.

Mark Hipkin said...

Thanks for the rapid response. Looks like I'm going to have to put Longhorns in to the same bracket as Wasps "Must do better!" David, I can get hold of that copy quite easily and will be reading up this week. Cheers

I also found one of these at Oxwich NNR on a tree stump at the old viewing platform today
