This bug dropped down onto our sunbed – maybe from the palm trees? We are in Phuket, Thailand in November.
It’s about 1″ – 2.5 cm long and pale brown with markings like tree bark
Signature: JanP

Weevil we presume

Longhorned Borer Beetle

Dear JanP,
This sure is an unusual looking Beetle, and we presume it is a Weevil in the superfamily Curculionoidea.  The antennae are unusually thick.  Perhaps one of our readers will have better luck than we have had finding a matching image online.

Thanks to a comment from Cesar, we now have a link to a Longhorned Borer Beetle genus
Pachylocerus on Cerambycidae Catalog Search.
