Hi Wayne,
By the looks of things, it appears you might be beginning a collection. This beautiful specimen is one of the Ergates Pine Sawyers. The larva eat the sapwood and heartwood of pines and Douglas firs usually feeding in fallen logs, stumps and telephone poles. According to Hogue, Ergates spiculatus is the largest local beetle in Los Angeles.
