Caption: Longhorn beetle in flight above a wild poppy (Papaver rhoeas) in a wheat (Triticum sp.) field. Beetles of the family Cerambycidae usually have very long antennae, hence their common name of longhorn beetles. Like most beetles their forewings are hard cases known as elytra. The hind wings are membranous and, when not in flight, are folded out of sight beneath the elytra. The larvae of longhorn beetles tunnel through trees and other plants, and can cause considerable damage to timber.
