Ribbed Pine Borer? - Rhagium inquisitor

Ribbed Pine Borer? - Rhagium inquisitor

This one was caught in some old spider webbing. I believe it to be Rhagium inquisitor, Ribbed Pine Borer(1). Can anyone verify?

Nice beetle!
How long was it?

I see it's carrying some attached immature mites in their red sacs.

 
Thanks
I would say around 10-12mm, but I didn't measure it. I didn't even notice the mites there, thanks for pointing it out :)

Moving these to the guide for now.
