Thanks Joel!
This specimen threw me off with all the white spots on the elytra. Both species are quite common in this area. Most specimens of Monochamus scutellatus around here are mostly spotless, except for the scutellum - as in this specimen:

And the Monochamus clamator specimens are always very spotted, but without the prominent white scutellum.


Moved from Spotted Pine Sawyer.

This looks a lot like Monocha
This looks a lot like Monochamus Scutellatus.
