tile-horned prionus

6102   Hi,   Attached is a photo of a beetle we found by an outside doorway of our home. We live in Lake Country, BC Canada where it is summer and has been very hot and dry. It is 2 inches long.  It does have a bit of white dust or something on its body, antennae and legs.  Thanks!

This appears to be a tile-horned prionus, Prionus imbricornis (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae); see https://tinyurl.com/y7t26gw3 for an image and more detailed information. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
