My friend, Ruth Sulik (tutor and magician extraordinaire from Alpine, Utah), found this Stenocorus posing in a plant in
the North Arm Viewing Area of Pineview Reservoir. What a gorgeous color on this insect! © Carol Davis 6-16-2012

Most larval species of the Longhorned Beetles family (Cerambycidae) feed on dead or decaying wood and some girdle living plants.
Adults may feed on flowers, sap, bark and others may not feed at all (according to Bugguide).
