Your specimen should fit with the description above.

I see no mention of such brown line on elytra...Does anybody have a picture of the holotype of X. apiculata Pascoe, 1869 ?

Here a picture of Xystrocera apiculata Pascoe, 1869 by Gérard and here holotype male picture by E. Nearns... hard to recognize the same species: Gérard's specimen is a female too but with longer antennae.

Mais c'est encore apiculata: c'est la seule espèce avec l'apex des élytres épineux.
Ça pourrait etre nouvelle pour la Nouvelle Bretagne.
