August 2012 we did see this beetle http://observado.org/waarneming/view/73641494
in NP Khao Sok, Thailand.
I think this is Cyrtotrachelus buqueti but i’m not sure.
Can you please help to identifie this beetle?

We believe you have correctly identified this as a female Giant Bamboo Weevil, Cyrtotrachelus buqueti. The photo on Siam Insect Zoo where it is called a Long Armed Palm Weevil is a very good match. Males of the species have the elongated front legs. Biodiversity in Shenzhen also has some good photos. InsectSale.com also has a nice image. Sinobug which has photos of the male of the species is where we first encountered the common name Giant Bamboo Weevil.
Thanks for your support and identification.I was a big and beautiful weevil te see.
This weevil was unkown on the site observado.org. but now they added this species on the site.
