Longicorn: Olenecamptus bilobus

Dear student,
This beautiful beetle is a Longicorn in the family Cerambycidae, and we believe it is Olenecamptus bilobus
which Karl identified on our site in a previous posting.  There are several subspecies and color variations, and since Sri Lanka is an island, this might be an endemic subspecies.  Here is a matching image from Project Noah.

Dear Sir,
Thank you very much for your kind answer, it was very helpful. thanks a lot again.
Best reguards,
Vidusanka Thilakanayaka
