General Note:
The Longhorn Beetles are a cosmopolitan family of beetles, typically characterized by extremely long antennae. These antennae are frequently as long or longer than the beetle's entire body. There are more than 20,000 known species of the Longhorn Beetle, with slightly over half coming from the Eastern Hemisphere. Known to be a serious pest, they have caused extensive damage to crops. The largest Longhorn Beetle -the Titan Beetle- is found in South and Central America, and it has been recorded at 6.6 inches, larger than some small adult Chihuahua dogs. http://www.nhm.ac.uk/nature-online/species-of-the-day/biodiversity/loss-of-habitat/titanus-giganteus/index.html
