Beetle from NM - Prionus integer Prionus sp - Prionus integer

Prionus integer LeConte -- D. Yanega det.
nice addition to the guide! thanx, Nick.

Moved from Prionus.

 
Thanks!
...for the ID!

Habitat?
Habitat could be a big clue. Meanwhile, check out Prionus emarginatus as a possibility? Did it have a hairy "neck" like that?

 
Thanks
Thanks for the help so far! Habitat was a relatively small wooded area in the middle of the Chihuahuan Desert, dominated by honey mesquite trees. I added a dorsal shot I found that seems not to show a hairy neck (right?).

 
I think not.
Best to leave at genus level for now, then....

....
Definately not a Gremlin, a reindeer or Yoda... :) ... all I can say is WOW. It it a beetle? and howdid you find it.

Longhorn beetle
in the genus Prionus
