Default Long horns

First time I find a beetle of the genus Acanthocinus, characterized by their long horns which can reach 5 times the length of the body. I guess the picture I show is that of a female.

Cool segments on the antennae, nice shot. Just wonder what the segments mean for the bug.

The antenna is long enough to pick up HDTV signals.
