All the photos I can find for Violaceus compsocerus have red antennae with a black pouf in the middle. I can't find any with antennae that look like Sergio's photo.

it is a "coleóptero". I couldn´t find its reference in wikipedia but I am quite sure because we have plenty. =)

In Uruguay we have plenty guitarreros, they are famous for the sound that they make and their beauty =). Greetings

I agree, it really does LOOK like a long-horned beetle. I was just taking a closer look and noticed how big those antennal segments were. It has to have 11-13 segments to be a cerambycid. It's a really nice-looking beetle!

Jack, I believe you are right. In my defense, see how the guy in the link bellow looks just like this one (less the pom-poms, of course).

This beetle doesn't have enough antennal segments to be a cerambycid, Sergio. It's more likely to be a cantharid.
