Hi,

I was over in france in july 2004 in the Poitou - Charenties area and came accross a weird and lovely looking bug..
we were really puzzled as to what it may be...
We dont know so i was wondering if anybody knew here...

Thanks for any ideas on this in advance.

Thanks

Looks like this type of bug from the beetle family Cerambycidae:

what I saw wasn't spruce, it was pine. I imagine one needle-leafed tree bug must have similarities with another needle-leafed tree bug.

Hey... Dang, you're good, littlek. I tried to help (on mp's other thread) , but you really know your bugs.

Sorry, mp. I was steering you wrong with the Miridae. <hanging head> I don't really know my bugs.

A weevil of sorts.




What weevil lurks in the hearts of pines?
The Shadow knows!!

Piffka - you just need to find one of the bug-shape charts and start from there. I don't really know much about bugs. But, that bug up there is a beauty, no?

I guess we should ask the shadow.

I guess I do need a bug-shape chart. Where do you find them?
