How about Lagocheirus obsoletus?

fuzzy feet
I took the picture of Lagocheirus obsoletus that is on the image page here at BG. This beetle was found at the same place, and it strongly reminds me of the beetle I photo'd previously. The difference (and I have no idea if this is significant) is the "fuzzy feet" on this specimen, while the previously photo'd specimen does not have that character.

Maybe "fuzzy feet" is a sexual character?
A picture and drawing of males at Bezark's cerambycid site have that characteristic here:

That's all I've got - I don't have specimens to look at.

I have only the image
But if I see another, I could collect it for you if you would like to have the specimen.

I'd love to have specimens
I'll happily take any and all cerambycids you are willing to collect and send to me (I'll pay for shipping). My collection is weak when it comes to Texas except for the northeast.

please e-mail me a shipping address, i think i have specimens of this one and others to spare

Moved, start here in Acanthocinini
