No specimen available

I found some fresh ones finally. These are very common. I mostly see them on 1-2 cm wide limbs, but also on stumps and standing snags. They seem to prefer “soft” wood, such as dogwood (Piscidia piscipula), figs (Ficus spp.), and tamarind (both the exotic Tamarindus indica and the native Lysiloma latisiliquum), but I’ve also seen them on mahogany (Swietenia mahogani) and stopper (Eugenia spp.) — always dead, probably for over a year. They persist for some time, but less than a year (I don’t see any where I noted them last Christmas).
