Now that's a name!
We came across this great beetle in the Funk Wilderness Area.
They can be found in/near swampy areas and edges of streams with host plant.
Eggs are laid near stems or at the base of the plant, the larvae then burrow their way into the stems and eat tunnels into the roots of the living plant. They can be seen between April and August.
Since 2015 we have been exploring and sharing all the amazing things we’ve found in nature.
