Flat-faced Longhorn Beetle

Oberea affinis, Long-horned Beetle photo



Family: Cerambycidae

Subfamily: Lamiinae

Length: 10-15 mm


The common name Raspberry Cane Borer is sometimes applied to this species, but should be used with caution, since it is also applied to Oberea perspicillata. The larvae of both species bore in the living canes of Rubus (Blackberry and Raspberry species).

The beetle shown here was photographed in the Canaan Valley near Davis.
