Hi Again Fred,
You are correct that this is a Bycid or Longhorned Borer Beetle in the family Cerambycidae.  After searching fruitlessly for your previous Bycid, we are please to inform you that we believe we have correctly identified this individual as
Taeniotes scalatus thanks to the Cerambycidae de Costa Rica site.
