The fiddler moniker refers to the pattern resemblance to a fiddle (violin). Several larvae were found under bark while removing a dead tulip (exotic) tree. One was opened to reveal a grub which didn't survive. The remaining ovate structures would have pupated and a perfectly formed fiddler beetle emerged from each some weeks later.0 votes
