Re: larvae ID

I presume 1 . I ve now been told that this branch is between 20-25cms diameter and that once the larvae has been found on the host tree it survives for only 2 years max. I ve croped the pic he gave me to get as close as possible. I ll contact him for some more as i feel this is a interesting find.
