Arizona Beetle
Hi, Bugman!
I searched your site and couldn’t find a match for this guy I found in the ladies’ room at the Proctor Trailhead, Madera Canyon, Arizona, on the 24th of November. The closest match is a longhorn beetle of some sort, or a Pine Sawyer? He was quite large, about three inches long. Any ideas? Thanks!

Hi Mary Beth,
This is not a beetle, but a true bug, or more specifically, the Giant Agave Bug, Acanthocephala thomasi.
