Brachyleptura circumdata

Brachyleptura circumdata
Parkwood, Durham, Durham County, North Carolina, USA
April 14, 2020
Size: 7 mm
Very small, pale flower longhorn found on flowers of Downy Arrowwood, Viburnum rafinsequianum. Captured for detail photos, length just 7 mm. Seems to match images here and description and plates in Yanega (1) (1). Elytral tips in focus. Yanega notes: "Easily separated from the lightest individuals of B. vagans and B. champlaini by the much less divergent elytral tips, which are also darkened."

If confirmed, woo-hoo, a first BugGuide record for North Carolina.
Confirmation or refutation appreciated.
Note. Dr. Arthur Evans confirmed this as Brachyleptura circumdata in the Facebook Jewel and Longhorned Beetle Forum 1 May 2020, where I posted a link to this node.
