Fine art illustration of a Valley Elderberry Longhorn Beetle (Desmocerus californicus dimorphus.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Valley Elderberry Longhorn Beetle was completed on 8.24.2010. This is part of a project for the visitors center for the Lodi watershed area south of Sacramento. I was unfamiliar with the species of beetle, so I had to do a fair amount of research on it to find out what the anatomy of the insect was. Apart from some color variations, including some that are more orange than red, I believe it’s pretty accurate.
