I found this guy during vacation, June of 2012 at Lake Catherine in Arkansas.
He was on the side of the cabin late one night about 10-15 ft away from a light.
There were a lot of longhorn and borer beetles while I was there and I have been able to ID all but this one…
His body is about 3/4 inch long, not sure about the antenna.

Hi Skeeter,
We will post your images, but we cannot do the research at this time.  We will also contact Eric Eaton to see if he recognizes your Longicorn.  Perhaps one of our readers with some free time today will write in with a comment.

That is Dorcaschema wildii, apparently no common name.  I believe they bore in mulberry trees.

    The unknown longerhorned Beetle appears to be the Mullberry Borer Dorcaschema wildii.

    Thank you Eric, Brian, and bugman for the quick replies.

    Brian… You called it the Mullberry Borer.
    Is that the “unofficial” common name?
