Beetle With Ovipositer posed and at rest on the huge Jack-O-Lantern (Omphalotus olearius) Fungi
I don’t know the name of this very large female beetle. I hope someone will tell me!
Discovered the name:
Broad-necked Root Borer (Prionus laticollis)
This photo was taken only moments before the first image in The Series below.
This beetle lives in a hardwood forest in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina, USA in Macon County near the small town of Franklin.
