This guy is about 1 1/4" long in the body about 10" wide antennae span (right off the camera lens here. We live in Northern New Mexico and found him in our door frame just last week. He let me move him onto this leather and relocate him without a fuss. WTB?

Hi Kim,
Wow!!! What antennae. We are relatively certain this is one of the Sawyers in the genus Monochamus, but we would like to check with Eric Eaton for confirmation.

Update from Eric Eaton (06/22/2006):
“Ok, the top longhorned beetle, with the REALLY long antennae, is probably something in the genus Acanthocinus.”
