Longhorned Beetle - Xylotrechus albonotatus

Longhorned Beetle - Xylotrechus albonotatus
Green's Peak Road FR 117, south end mile 16, around campground., Apache County, Arizona, USA
July 26, 2009
Could not find a match in Clytini.
Help with ID would be appreciated.

Moved tentatively per Dr Swift's following comment:
"quite interesting. Hard to say from a photo, BUT ... from the body proportions, it appears to be in the albonotatus realm. A strange, yellow-colored morph of albonotatus has been taken from the Charleston Mountains outside of Las Vegas, NV. This population may represent a new species, but more material, especially from other nearby mountain ranges is needed. Anyway, I'd say this bug is an albonotatus for now."

Moved from Xylotrechus.

i knew it's a nice find -- and a nice pic, too...
Moved from Longhorned Beetles.

It is a Xylotrechus
In pubescence it seems closest to Xylotrechus hovorei Swift, but it also resembles Xylotrechus albonotatus Casey. Neither is recorded from Arizona, though. Did you actually collect the beetle?

I did not collect the beetle.
Thanks for the ID.
