Attached photos - larval bore holes of the large prionine cerambycid Mallodon (Stenodontes) dasystomus in a dead ash tree. I see the bore holes much more often than the beetles. The larvae are still active in these particular ones - fresh wood shavings are still being pushed through.

Great images!
I occasionally collected this species and couple other Prionine species, and reared to emergence. They are.... nice and were interesting.

Nice! Find any larvae?

They're definitely in there, but probably embedded 12" or more into the wood.
