Longhorn beetle

Carneades sp.


I only could take a few shots of this beetle because it was chased away by an ant who was on the same plant.


Caribbean lowland, humid forest.

Thx again Bayucca for your help. To me it also looks more like championi but as we are not sure I will leave it to sp. as you suggested.

Cerambycidae, Lamiinae, Colobothini, Carneades sp.. But I am not really sure if it is Carneades championi or Carneades superba, as my closest guess, though. I am sceptic about Carneades grandis due to the size and amount of spots on the pronotum. Personally I slightly would tend to Carneades championi.
Here are some links to illustrate my dilemma...
