Dear Jason,
It took a short time for us to properly identify this striking Cerambycid on BugGuide, but we have identified it as Purpuricenus humeralis.  The species has no common name, but the genus is known collectively as Purplescent Longhorns.  This is a new species for our website and we are very thrilled to post your photo.
