Aperture: 10

    Nice capture Shelley. According to my book “The Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Insects and Spiders” – my bible ;-) This is a Cottonwood Twig Borer. Well done!


  • Thank you! I’m not sure if this species would be common to Australia though? That’s where I live and captured this little critter. I definitely need to get an insect bible! Cheers for your help Francine! :)
