Moved from Strangalia.

Brachyleptura circumdata
Having a size is always helpful, especially in images that lack good scale references. The pale elytra with dark apices makes this separable from the larger B. rubrica, which has much darker and orangish elytral color.

Any chance it is Trigonarthris?

from Doug Yanega:
"It's an interesting one; it appears to be Strangalia acuminata, but has some very subtle features that are a bit more like S. solitaria - then again, I saw very few specimens of acuminata, which is a rare species in collections."

Moved from Lepturini.

 
This beetle seemed too beamish for Strangalia.
I realize these are not true perpendicular shots, thus could be interpreted as being more end-on so as to make Strangalia fit. Are females far wider than males? Could I have seen/photographed only males previously?

To me this seemed to have the proportions of Brachy*leptura far more than Strangalia.

Moved from Flower Longhorns.
