Long-horned Beetle
Crossidius coralinus parviceps

red and black beetle
Long-horned Beetles are easily identified by their long antennae. These are particularly
 beautiful because of the shiny black appearance in contrast with the red body.  You
might say this beetle is a snappy dresser!  Carol Davis 9-21-2008
