What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Hi Bugman,
This insect was on my curtain the other day. I’m not sure if you have one of these on your site and I don’t know which catagory it would be under if you did. It sort of looks like a beetle. I put him back outside whatever it was. Do you know?

Hi Jordan,
This is a Long Horned Borer Beetle in the family Cerambycidae.

Hi Guys:
In examination of the photograph of the cerambycid from Costa Rica, it appears to be Psapharochrus circumflexus (aka Acanthoderes circumflexa). It, like so many insects, does not have a common name. It is very common in Costa Rica, and the larvae bore in many different freshly downed trees such as Cecropia. Hope this helps!
