AKA Giant Longhorn Beetle. It is one of the largest beetles in South America and can reach up to 120mm in length. The adults are black/tan in colour, have long antennae, and spines on the thorax which form a collar around the "neck" of the beetle. They have wings and can fly, albeit awkwardly at times. Mature beetles emerge in the summer to mate. Not harmful to humans, but can bite if forced to defend itself. As a root borer the larvae can cause significant damage to the roots of individual trees during its larval phase.
