Stenodryas clavigera

It was getting dark so I was on my way home… And there it was, a tiny longhorn beetle sitting on a leaf, waiting to have its photo taken! I’d spent about 5 hours looking for longhorns and here was one I’d never found before – very exciting!! The most obvious feature of this species is its thickened black femurs (“thighs”).
