I found this fellow, dead under a Ficus Religiosa, in Bangalore, India. Actually, I visit this tree, post lunch everyday. I had noticed this on the branches, often.

This is truly an impressive Longicorn, and its antennae are amazing. We did not find anything similar on Prioninae of the World, but we might have missed it. We will continue to attempt a species identification for you.
Update: Cesar Crash of Insetologia sent a comment that identifies this beautiful male Longicorn as being in the genus Neocerambyx, and this image of Neocerambyx paris on Cerambycoidea Forum looks very similar.

It looks like Cerambycinae, hard to tell wich one, but similar to Neocerambyx. Must be a male.
Thanks so much Cesar.
