Mango Stem Borer

Hi sulasno,
Your beetle is Batocera rufomaculata, and it is commonly called a Mango Stem Borer.  It is one of the Longhorned Borer Beetles or Longicorns in the family Cerambycidae.

  1. Batocera: definitely edible.
    During an insect banquet in Chiang Mai I found a ‘mixed plate’ of insects, including a couple of sphinx moths and an adult Batocera. I tried it, but didn’t find much to eat in the abdomen. I think the larva would be more delectable.
