Cerambycid? - Semanotus ligneus

Cerambycid? - Semanotus ligneus
South Jordan, Salt Lake County, Utah, USA
April 12, 2014
Size: 15 mm
I threw a stump of a cedar tree, I had cut down in my yard, and I found this beetle crawling around in the wheel barrow. It may or may not have been associated with the Cedar. I haven't seen any evidence of an infestation on the tree as I cut it up. I have collected cerambycids for a long time and have never encountered this beetle. I'm very interested in what it is.

Moved from ID Request.

species is
Semanotus ligneus, the cedar tree borer

Looks like it was associated with the cedar trunk. I will watch for me because I saved the bigger pieces for firewood.
