need a push on this one
...and perhaps a sharper image :-]
a sphindid? check

Yes, you are correct
Based on this website, there are 2 species of this family in BC and it must be Odontosphindus clavicornis based on the 11-segmented antennae and toothed pronotal margins (double checked under the scope). Yet another new beetle family for me :-) Thanks for leading me in the right direction.
