Moved Tentatively...
There are four species in Washington. I eliminated the following because:

1) T. sericeus: this species should have abbreviated prosternal carinae (complete in your specimen).
2) T. chevrolati: based on the shape of the pronotum, if this is chevrolati it would be a male but lacks lateral elytral fringe of setae.
3) T. mendax: shape of pronotum not right and mendax would have smaller eyes.

Moved from False Metallic Wood-boring Beetles.

 
Wow...
Thanks for your help and expertise.. First of this one on the west coast for BG... I'm a happy camper.

sorry...i cannot tell
The middle leg on the venter is in the way of the metathoracic groove...LOL. If you can reposition the middle leg it should help.

 
No wonder..
You did a LOL, it was extreme hard to get the middle leg pulled up. I did it through and it will be an attached image shortly...
