Asian Longhorned Beetle

Name and Alias

Scientific Name: Anoplophora glabripennis

Common Name: Starry Sky Beetle

Physical Description

Adults are very large insects with bodies ranging from 1 to 1.5 cm (0.39 to 0.59 in) in length and antennae which can be as long as 4 cm (1.6 in) or 1.5–2 times longer than the body of the insect. They are shiny black with about 20 white spots on each wing cover and long antennae conspicuously banded black and white. These beetles can fly, but generally only for short distances, which is a common limitation for Cerambycidae of their size and weight. The upper sections of the legs of the adults are whitish-blue. A. glabripennis can be distinguished from related species by the markings on the wing covers and the pattern of the antennae.
