Wood borers

I have recently found this beetle in my Andalucian farmhouse.  I suspect it is from the beams.  Can anyone identify them.   The scale on the  picture is in cm.DSC_1276.JPG

    Yes, its a wood boring beetle of the longhorn family (Cerambycidae), but most are usually not too harmful as they are not present in high numbers. It doesn't look unlike Phymatodes testaceus, but the femora (thighs) don't seem 'knobbly' enough.

    It's Stromatium fulvum, and its biology is completely unrelated with beans. The larva lives on wood.
