Rosalia funebris on Jul 6, 2021

Description of specimen

I believe this to be a Alder Bore Bettle not its Asian counter part. I read some conflicting things on if it's good or bad for our area. Its segment closest to the head is black and has one white spot

Commentary

Dear Rachel, yes, you are correct. This is our native banded alder borer, Rosalia funebris. Thank you, Helmuth
