Snapped this pic while feeding the horses. Near a creek with mostly cottonwoods and willows. Located about 80 miles North of Sacramento CA. No one around here seems to know what it is…I’ve never seen one either.

Hi Susan,
Your Longicorn is
Synaphaeta guexi, and we get one or two requests each year from California to identify this lovely beetle.

Thank you so much for your reply!  I too thought it very beautiful.
