Think this may be Leptura plagifera which isn't currently listed on BG.

Tentative ID based on photos from the Spencer Entomological Museum at UBC and from photo and description in "The Lepturine Longhorn Beetles of the Pacific Norhtwest", Philip Schapker, 2017. The key includes the following description for L. plagifera:
"Elytra red with large discal black spot extending over most of area. Pronotum with short, erect bristles."

Bristles visible in third photo with pronotum enlarged.
