Moved from Leptura propinqua.

thanks -- that add'l angle sealed the deal
and Dr Thomas's opinion dispelled any doubts, too. Now your pix have been moved to the guide -- a part of BG process i hope you'll learn over time, because i want you to become a regular supplier of photos.
i moved those to the guide because we still have just a few pix of this species and yours proved valuable; those that aren't may be disposed of ['frassed'] at some point by either the contributor or an editor.
i also linked the two images -- they would've been linked automatically had you used the 'add image' feature from the first image [in which case the system applies the title & data to the next form so you don't have to fill the same stuff twice -- but can edit as necessary]

Moved from ID Request.

any dorsal views to add?
this is a pollen-laden lepturine longhorn -- most likely, Leptura propinqua, but hard to be certain from this awkward angle

 
I agree
.

 
Better angle?
I just posted a second picture with a little different angle. Hopefully it helps! Thank you!
