P. cerambyciformis distribution

I like the photos. This species is reasonably common in Wales and parts of southern England, but very locally distributed further north.

I think this long horned beetle could be know in English as the Speckled Long horned beetle.
The Long Horned beetles belong to the family 'Cerambycidae' This family of beetles is a large one, with over 20,000 species described. Fantastic family I think, always exciting to spot one. Nice photographs.

I think Pachytodes is the

I think Pachytodes is the currently acceptable name for this one! Easy to distinguish from Rutpela maculata, (http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/18353) which has four black bands and yellow on the legs.
