Arrowhead Borer? - Xylotrechus sagittatus

Arrowhead Borer? - Xylotrechus sagittatus

Yes, I think so
Yes, I think it is Xylotrechus sagittatus. You can see the little groove on the forehead distinctive for Xylotrechus--Gary Bunker, I believe, mentioned this on one of my images. Those marks on the elytra look correct for sagittatus, and I think that narrows it down enough.
