    The problem with rounded personalities is they don't tesselate.

    Thank you
    That's such a relief. There are hundreds of them!

    It's a rhagium bifasciatum. It's a member of the longhorn beetle family. Very common. Seen May to July. Larvae live in decaying coniferous timber.

    Took his picture this morning, sheltering from the rain in our porch.
