Let's ask Angel Solis, what he thinks about it...

Thanks for the effort Bayucca! To me, someone who doesn´t have scientific formation on this field, it sure looks like lemonei with a color morph or without some spots, there seems to be pronotal horns on barbatum but my spotting doesn't have them. Also the mandibles are much larger on barbatum than those shown on the spotting. Very interesting indeed! Thank you very much for making me discover all of these interesting details.

Cerambycidae, Prioninae, Callipogonini, Callipogon sp., that's for sure. Now the tricky part starts. C. lemoinei should not be present in Costa Rica according to Angel Solis. But there might be Lemoinei mixed up with Barbatum in the collection of the ones in the museum in Costa Rica. So further info is needed. The coloration and stripes are unfortunately not type-specific for getting a safe ID. I think my suggestion is a valuable compromise for an ID.
