July 13, 2015: Red Milkweed Beetle

Another insect that can be found on milkweeds is the Red Milkweed Beetle (Tetraopes tetrophthalmus), a member of the Cerambycidae Family.  In many longhorn beetles the antenna are situated near the eye.  However, for this species, the antennal bases actually bisect the eyes. 6/23/15 (Wolf. Oesterreich)
