The Longhorn Beetle

Long-horned beetle (family Cerambycidae), commonly known as longicorn, is any of the approximately 25,000 species of beetles (insect order Coleoptera) whose common name comes from their extraordinarily long antennae. These beetles can be found all throughout the world, but they are most common in the tropics. They are available in sizes ranging from 2 to 152 mm (less than 1/8 inch to about 6 inches). When the antennae are added, these lengths may double or triple.
