PLEASE identify
For these two insects, I need to know their common English name, the Genus name, and the Species name in Latin—please help!!! Thanks so much!!!
(07/30/2008) Both were in Tikal, Guatemala. Thanks so much for your help.

Your beetle is a Cerambycid or Long Horned Borer Beetle known as a Harlequin Beetle, Acrocinus longimanus. It is one of the largest and most magnificent members of its family. It is found in Central and South America. We held off on an identification until you provided us with a location. We wrote back requesting the location because we really wanted to post the photo.
