Longhorn in pitcher plant - Brachyleptura dehiscens

Longhorn in pitcher plant - Brachyleptura dehiscens
Eugene, Lane County, Oregon, USA
July 23, 2020
Found dead in one of the pitchers of Sarracenia "Fat Chance". I was about to put some squash bugs into some of the other pitchers when I saw this already floating inside. It doesn't really look like any longhorn that I've seen previously, so I pulled it out to get a few pictures.

It looks the way it does from soaking in the pitcher plant. There was some yellow at the front of the head that looked like it could be pollen, so I assume it's a flower longhorn. I returned it to the same pitcher after I took the pictures.

Brachyleptura dehiscens
A fairly uncommon species in my experience, and judging by the paucity of images on BG.
