Clytus ruricola, Olivier 1795

 

Said to be a wasp mimic, Clytus ruricola, the Round-necked Longhorn (Family Cerambycidae) is a wood-boring beetle whose larva feed mostly on maple. The adult is a pollen feeder and, in this case, is making its way over a Euphorbia bloom. 

Photographed on 13 July, 2014. Edmonton. ID and information from Insects of Alberta.
