A friend of mine is inquiring about the name and type of insect this is. After much searching on the internet and books of insects, I am still not able to identify it. Thank you in advance for your help.
Your letter to the bugman This picture was taken outside of a house in Jamaica, West Indies. The insect as unsual antenaes. They look like twigs and are longer in length then the body of the insect.
Jamaica, West Indies
Dear not sure,
This is some species of Longicorn in the family Cerambycidae. We will try to do additional research.

The Jamaican longhorn is probably Neoptychodes trilineatus (See BugGuide), or at least in that genus, eh? No problem, maan….:-)
