The Longhorn Beetle (ゴマダラカミキリ, Gomadara-kamikiri?) is a bug that can be found in all versions of Animal Crossing series. It is quite uncommon in all Animal Crossing series games. It typically appears on trees, with the exceptions of Animal Crossing: City Folk and Animal Crossing: New Leaf where it will only appear on tree stumps. It sells for 200 bells in Animal Forest, but 260 bells in every other game it is found in.

Donating to the Museum

As with all other bugs in the Animal Crossing series, the longhorn beetle can be donated to the Museum followed by a small talk by Blathers, the curator.

In Animal Crossing

"Hoo my! Those sharpish mandibles... truly frightening. Honestly, what could be more off-putting than these? And the antennae! Why on earth are they so very thick? Blech! Most objectionable! In a word: bad!"

In Wild World

Hoo, I say! Be sure to keep your fingers away from that savage maw! And what ostentatious antennae! I mean, really! Blech! Such foulness...

In City Folk

"The multiple varieties and colorful body types of the longhorn beetle make it popular with collectors. It stands toe-to-toe with the dynastid and stag beetles in its popularity with children, eh wot? But those long, skinny legs and long antennae drop it right off this owl's list! How utterly revolting..."

In New Leaf

In New Leaf an information board in the bug exhibit will list information about this bug.

"Longhorn beetles have very strong mandibles, and both adult and larval forms eat through the bark of trees. They have extremely long antennae that are sometimes even longer than their bodies. The adults have such strong mandibles that they can bite off people's hair. And keep in mind that hair isn't the only thing they'll bite, so be careful when handling them!"

After donation, it can be found on the second tier of the bug section of the museum, in the middle enclosure containing two trees and a tree stump, on the tree stump with the violin beetle. This enclosure also contains the walking leaf and oak silk moth to name a few others.

Bug Encyclopedia Information

Players can access the in-game encyclopedia in Animal Crossing: Wild World, Animal Crossing: City Folk, and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. It gives information on Fish and Bugs in the games.

Further Information

Anoplophora glabripennis1

Asian Longhorn Beetle

Anoplophora glabripennis, a longhorn beetle in the family Cerambycidae, is an Asian species that has spread across the world and become a pest in many of these locations. By boring into Chinese trees and as a result being transported in lumber transportation, Asian Longhorns or Starry-sky beetles have set foot in both America and Europe. 

In British Columbia where the tree industry is widespread, these beetles can cause devastating damage in both the adult and larval forms, where they eat through the bark of trees and the branches.

Affected trees suffer from leaf loss and poor growth, and the only effective way to combat the beetle is to burn all the trees in the vicinity. Millions of dollars have been spent on eradicating the beetle, which has no natural predators in North America.
