Description of specimen

led to believe it is Xylotrechus rusticus - euroasian beetle. Beetle that looks partially like a cricket. Small wings, long back legs, little soars away doesn't seem to fly long distances. Brown body, black spots, light brown rings.


Hard to see the markings clearly but this more closely resembles Xylotrechus longitarsis, a native species that is not a pest.
