Dear D. Austin,
The white scutellum indicates that your Longhorned Beetle is a Whitespotted Sawyer, and we verified on BugGuide that its range does extend to Alaska.
Thank you so much for your quick response. I wanted to clarify that this beetle was found in Teton National Park in Wyoming. I’m assuming that the range of this beetle, the Whitespotted Sawyer, includes Wyoming.
