Unidentified Long-horned Beetle - Ortholeptura

Unidentified Long-horned Beetle - Ortholeptura
Bellevue, King County, Washington, USA
August 1, 2015
I've seen very similar but much smaller long-horned beetles, generally mating in and among blooming flowers

Moved from ID Request.

Wonder if it is one of the Ortholeptura

Ortholeptura valida?

Does look consistent with "Ortholeptura valida", but strictly non expert here (what's the term for "below" amateur, lol). This one seems to be the one found in WA state as well, mainly in August. (Think I saw it evening of 7/31 and 8/01 - just checked and see it's gone now)
