Have seen about Three of these in Las Vegas, NV in the 12 years I have lived here. I know this one fly’s, as he landed on my neck!

Dear R. Klaus,
Summer is the season for large Prionid Borer Beetles and we get reports of various species from different locations across North America. Your individual is a Palo Verde Root Borer and it is the second example we are posting today.
Thank you! I put him on a tree, hope he’s doing well…
