Unknown black beetle - Etorofus anthracinus

Unknown black beetle - Etorofus anthracinus
Lassen Volcanic National Park, Shasta County, California, USA
August 4, 2012
Size: 1 to 1.5 inches
This beetle was on the water fountain in front of the restrooms at the Manzanita Campground at the north end of Lassen NP. Seen in the evening.

Moved tentatively; neat...
Moved from ID Request.

Cerambycidae, Lepturinae
We'll have to wait for one of the bycid experts to weigh in, but this looks similar to specimens of Leptura anthracina I caught last summer here in Northern California.
