Male Ponderous Borer - Trichocnemis spiculatus - male

Male Ponderous Borer - Trichocnemis spiculatus - Male
In Westwood; elevation 5100ft, Lassen County, California, USA
Size: 60mm
Date: 1990

This big beetle was found in the exhaust-fan duct space above the cook stove of my neighbor's home. It made a lot of noise up in there. When they pulled down the screen this big beetle came down and gave the lady a scare. How it got in there I do not know. They knew I was into bugs so they gave it to me. They were glad to get rid of it! And I as glad to get it! The year was 1990.
