I'm an iggly, I'm an iggly, what iggly am I ?

Recommended Posts

Not entirely sure on the galleries of this one, but I'd hazard a guess toward Oak pin hole borer - Platypus cylindrus.

 

The dark staining could be the presence of the Ambrosia fungi.

Which the beetle introduces into the tunnels for the larvae to feed on.
