Long-horned Beetle
"Flower Longhorn"
Leptura propinqua


Leptura propinqua beetle
I was surprised to find this beetle because I thought it was  a different longhorn
 (
Cosmosalia chrysocoma) but it had two big dots on its back.  I had to search
a bit on Bugguide to find the species.  © Carol Davis 7-27-2017

This beetle was feeding alongside the Mirror Lake Highway in Summit County, Utah.  Oregon
State University
says the larvae are reared from decaying coniferous wood. There
 was
plenty of that in the Uintas.  © Carol Davis 7-27-2017
