Description of specimen

Zebra longhorn beetle . I squished it ..dont have the corpse sorry..but I'm certain of identification as I examined it before I placed in in the trash

Commentary

Dear Michael, "zebra" longhorned beetle sounds like our native banded alder borer, Rosalia funebris. Here is more information on this native beetle: https://entomology.oregonstate.edu/sites/agscid7/files/entomology/Banded_Alder%20Borer_13.pdf
Thank you, Helmuth Rogg
