Dear Dennis,
We agree that this is a Longhorned Borer Beetle in the family Cerambycidae, but we do not recognize the species.  We will continue to research this and we will also seek assistance.  Meanwhile, we are posting it as unidentified pending additional research.

Daniel:
Longhorn in the tribe Elaphidiini.  The spiked antennal segments make it so.  Tough to ID to genus even without more time and it is after 1 AM here now.  Prompt me again if I don’t get back to it, please.
Eric
