Description

Weird little bugs in a late magnolia flower. A couple of them were mating and as we watched, about a half dozen more flew in (attracted by the pheromones?) and basically created a mess of mating magnolia bugs.

BugGuide suggests that S. luteicornis might be a mimic of Typocerus velutinus - Banded Longhorn
