This little gem was spotted in Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago 1st May 2009. It is located on the side a bank headquarters approx 5ft from a grass lawn.
From tip of head to tail of body it measured approx 3inches. The photograph provides greater detail. It was stationary for about 2hrs and then when i returned it had gone. I am therefore unable to proivde details of flight/movement.
I would be grateful for classification/name etc etc if available
Trinidad, Port of Spain
The Harlequin Beetle, Acrocinus longimanus, really is a spectacular Longhorned Borer Beetle from Central and South America as well as come of the Caribbean Islands. Thanks so much for sending us your great photograph.
