This guy (or gal) was crawling on our paint-chipped gnome that we have hauled around for years. I have never seen anything remotely close to him (or her) before.
The closest identification I can find is possibly an 'assassin bug', but that's just a guess. Any help in identifying it would be welcome.
Thanks to Yamini, Hanna and Ittdgy for identifying it for me as a Squeaking Longhorn Beetle that is native to NZ.
The fuzzy antennae are interesting.
