Longicorn: Prosopocera lactator

Dear Mr Sykes,
We quickly identified this gorgeous Longicorn as Prosopocera lactator on Insect Designs, and we learned on Cerambycoidea.com that it is reported from “Angola, Zambia, S Tanzania, Malawi and N Mozambique” but not Botswana which is curious as Botswana is quite close to the countries listed in the range.

Location: Botswana
