Plumeria stem borer more than likely, the larvae of a beetle. I've read you have to physically remove the larvae, since insecticides are ineffective. Since it is on the main trunk, you may lose the plant.

I didn't realize how old this post was. I hope your plumeria survived.

Looks like this was the only post they made and never came back. I hope it survived.
