Unknown Longhorn - bit of help please.

My 'bug of the day' was this super Longhorn Beetle species. Can't pin it down to a specific ID. Body length 10mm. Cambridgeshire UK. May 2012.
Many thanks in advance for help with the ID.
Joe

Looks like Mesosa nebulosa; a rare species found in southern England and south Wales. Good find!

You might want to send the details to the UK Cerambycidae Recording Scheme: http://www.brc.ac.uk/scheme_details.asp?schemeChoice=7

Cheers for that Bob. Just checked the records for the site where found and it's been recorded once. This makes two records for the site.
