Phytoecia (Musaria) rubropunctata
This small longhorn beetle I had never seen left me a few seconds to take it on a dry hillside calcicole in the Lot. The adult is floricultural, but only lays at the foot of the mountain seselis. Larvae shall develop in the roots of this plant very present at the place of shooting.
