Longhorned Beetle - Parelaphidion aspersum

Longhorned Beetle - Parelaphidion aspersum
Austin, Travis County, Texas, USA
July 21, 2007
It seems like this is evidently in the Subfamily Lamiinae - Flat-Faced Longhorns, but I can't even narrow it down to a genus. I would appreciate help on this one.

Moved
Moved from Longhorned Beetles.

I believe...
...this is Parelaphidion aspersum.

Anelaphus parallelus

 
Pronotum has glabrous ridge
Hard to see in the photo but i think there is a midline glabrous ridge on the pronotum. That would confirm Parelaphidion over Anelaphus.

 
Better?
I added a tighter crop with some color adjustments to bring out the detail in the pronotum.

 
Perfect
That makes it very clear. I would say definitely P. aspersum (however I have to admit there might be additional possibilities in TX that I am unaware of).
