Could not identify this bug anywhere on the internet.
Hi, I’m Jason Lai from Malaysia and I need some of your help to identify this bug. I caught it in Fraiser’s Hill, Malaysia for an insect collection project and its due next thurs (25/1/2007). hope you can identify the bug by then. thx!

Hi Jason,
This is Aristobia approximator, one of the Longhorned Borer Beetles in the family Cerambycidae. We found this identification in a wonderful book we were given entitled Living Jewels by Poul Beckmann printed by Prestel. We then did some web searching with the name and discovered this beetle has appeared on stamps from Laos in 1974, North Vietnam in 1977 and Central Africa in 1962. It can also be found for sale to insect collectors on many sites.
