Very beautiful macro of this strange insect!

And hello again! :>
Many, many thanks for this dedication! As you know beetles are are favourite insect group so this is a great honout and pleasure for me to watch this picture :>
According to ID I really have no idea if it is Lixus species or not. There are so many species in the world that without any specialistic literature I can not say even if there is any Lixus species in S America.
Anyway, beetle is shown in natural habitat, with good DOF and details. Very good work my Friend!
And once again many thanks for dedication!!! :>
Friendly yours,
