Female Flatfaced Longhorn: Graphisurus species

Dear Curious in NC,
Because of the extremely long ovipositor, we believe this female Flatfaced Longhorn is either
Graphisurus fasciatus or  Graphisurus despectus.  Here is a BugGuide image of the latter for comparison.  The former has a greater range and BugGuide data reports it from North Carolina.

Location: Asheville, North Carolina
