Hi I found what I think might be an asian long horn beetle in Bloomington today. I didnt think that these beetles had made it to MN. Can you identify the species of this beetle? Attached is a picture Thanks Matt

It is probably a white-spotted sawyer beetle. They are similar looking but do not have as long of antennae. I can't see the top of the beetle but maybe you can look at this link and compare.

Someone else has also suggested that it could be a type of stink bug.

The insects in the photos are nymphs of the brown marmorated stink bug, a invasive species that feeds on many fruits and vegetables. See
