I saw this enormous thing late at night on my bean plants. It does not appear to have the markings or coloration of the Asian Longhorned beetle or the whitespotted sawyer beetle. It flew away while I was photographing it and landed too high for me to get better photos. It’s at least three inches long, not including it’s extremely long antennae.

This is one of the Longicorns in the subfamily Prioninae, but we are uncertain of the species because of the camera angle. Our best guess is that this is a Brown Prionid, Orthosoma brunneum.
