Purpuricenus sp.

Another longhorned beetle. Photo taken after a rain. Insect's body was about 2cm long.

It looks like

Purpuricenus budensis budensis


Purpuricenus nudicollis

Thanks Argus for pointing me to the right direction on identification.

Merhaba Ali,
A fine macro of a Longhorn, a member of the Cerambycidae family, not soldier beetles.
The sharpness, colours and composition are excellent, but as this species does not exist in Scandinavia I cannot ID it.
This is a beautiful species, well captured by you,
Thanks and best regards,

Merhaba Ali bey,
Great capture of this pretty Cerambycideae. Colours are impressive and the composition with the leave is very nice. The two ID you propose are very similar. Not easy to find the correct ID! Selamlar,

Hello Ali,
Nice portfolio do you have.
I saw this beauty and I like it very much.
Excellent sharpness, details and beautiful bright and contrasting colours. Pleasing composition too.

Ali, this is a wonderful shot of this beetle. Love the blurred background. Great sharpness and POV. Have a great day, Bill
