Asemum striatum (Linnaeus, 1758)
Another of the longhorn beetles, but not an obvious species. Generally dark coloured, Asemum striatum is frequently found on Pine trunks, head downwards and with the abdomen raised in a curious posture. April and May are the best times to see this species, which is probably common throughout the Pine plantations of Nottinghamshire. The larvae feed on freshly dead or dying Pine stumps.
