When I woke up this morning, I found this insect on a door. It’s two front legs are very long, as well as the antennae. When we tried to move it, it hissed. A while later, it flew away.
We are supposed to be in the rainy season, but it has been hot and dry. Hope you know what it is! God bless.
We always love posting photos of Harlequin Beetles, Acrocinus longimanus. Your individual is a male as evidenced by his disproportionately long antennae and front legs. The species ranges from Mexico to Brazil.
