Need Help To ID A Bug!

I have found many of these bugs on my roses. I can't find out what there are and I'm hoping someone here can help.

I appreciate any help I can get identifying this bug.

You've got one of the flower longhorn beetles.

Thanks for your help Dorie, they look like have a longer body than longhorns, and thinner legs. It looks much thinner to me than the picture you showed the link to.

But I'm not a bug person either. LOL

It looks like one of the long-horned beetles that damages diseased and dying trees. The adults visit flowers to obtain protein -- pollen -- needed in order to produce eggs.

Hereabouts, I'm currently finding Leptura oblitera on my Hydrangea paniculata -- they're eating pollen and mating.

I can't see adequate detail in your photo to determine if it's the same species. And I don't have my reference book handy to double check.

You guys narrowed it down - it's a Notch-tipped Flower Longhorn Beetle: Cerambycidae: Typocerus sinuatus
