Hi!
This little bug appeared in the back of my house. I have never seen a bug like this before and would be very thankful if you could identify it for me.
The bug was about 15 mm long, from head to toe.
Thanks!

Longhorned Borer Beetle

Hi Daniel,
This is one of the Longhorned Borer Beetles in the family Cerambycidae, though our initial search could not find any possibilities for a species identification.  We will set your letter to post while we are out of the office for the holiday.

    This is a male Acanthochinus aedilis. Females have shorter antenna and have ovipositor. Larvae live on Pinus sylvestris (Scotish pine?). More precisely they live under the bark and go pupating into the wood. Beetles live from second half of april to first half on june
