That's interesting, I initially thought this might be the Speckled Longhorn Pachytodes cerambyciformis? I think I would have recorded this beetle as that from the photo. Pattern between the 2 species seems very close at either end of the range in marking variation. This beetle looks very hairy, which is a feature of P cerambycifomis although I can see J sexmaculata also shows some pubescence. Is there a feature shown in this photo that I can uses in the future. Cheers.
