Hi. I found this weird beetle thing on my bedroom floor today and freaked out thinking it was a cockroach. But I noticed the mandibles and now I’m confused. It’s about 4cm long.

Dear Ellie,
The mandibles on this Longicorn are quite impressive.  We are pretty confident we have correctly identified it as
Toxeutes macleayi thanks to images on Atlas of Living Australia and Prioninae of the World.
