can you identify this Cerambycidae from today in Middle Germany? A time ago I knew this species but now I have no idea, what it is.

Can you help me?

Thank you and Greetings, Xaver

Hello Robert!

Thank you for showing me the homepage , but you was not completely right: Look at this site at the same homepage: http://www.uochb....acgris.htm. It is Acanthocinus griseus.

If you had not show me this homepage, I never solved the identification.

Thanks a lot and Greetings

Definitely A. griseus.
To distinguish these two genera: Monochamus has different antennae, with scape (1st segment) robust and with scarlike structure (cicatrix) at apex. A row of yellow spots on pronotum is also characteristic for Acanthocinus.
