Hey, I was hoping to get some help on identifying these beetles that were mating on some Meadow Death-Camas. It's in the video... but I made a screen capture just for a picture for the thread.

Thanks in advance for any help!!

These are flower longhorns, long-horned wood-boring beetles in the subfamily Lepturinae - see for an example.

Cool. Thank you! Someone had suggested Acmaeops pratensis?

Although Acmaeops pratensis could be a possibility, I for one would be hesitant to make a specific identification from these images.
