Correct on the first one but Necydalis melita lives in North America. This one is from Europe.

Hint. Its on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Nope but close. :) Rosalia alpina is one of the very few Cerambycids that are on Red List.

Correct!!! One of the largest insect in Europe. Prefer old decidous, preferably oak forests.
