Single horned beetle


They usually will die after mating and laying eggs. The eggs are laid directly in the ground, then hatch into a wriggling larva, which usually mature in a year. Combat occurs between males competing for mates. Male beetles normally die in the fall after mating many times, whereas female beetles normally die after laying eggs.

As with many large families, different authorities have tended to recognize many different subfamilies, or sometimes split subfamilies off as separate families entirely (., Disteniidae , Oxypeltidae , and Vesperidae ); [4] there is thus some instability and controversy regarding the constituency of the Cerambycidae. [5] There are few truly defining features for the group as a whole, at least as adults, as there are occasional species or species groups which may lack any given feature; the family and its closest relatives, therefore, constitute a taxonomically difficult group, and relationships of the various lineages are still poorly understood.
