Nice one! How big is it? We get some around here that get to be about two inches in length. And with those long antennae, they're some pretty impressive looking beetles!

That's a one of the Cerambycid borer beetles. I couldn't tell you what species--there are TONS of them. But the common term for the Cerambycids is "long-horn" beetle, referring to their distinct antennae.

@Insectra Do you carry all this info in your brilliant head?

@AstralSmoke you read my mind. SHe is a wiz

@btroje, @AstralSmoke, @Insectra is indeed! So cool we have her on this site with us!

Thanks you guys! You are all too kind. 🙂

It might be edible; but I wouldn't eat it. Try it though, if you're daring
