From Peru in wood material.
Is this a lepturinae cerambycid?

What a nice species !
It's not a Lepturinae, but a Cerambycinae , Rhinotragini.

It's a Odontocera , but there are many close species :

Odontocera auropilosa Tippmann 1953 ?

or Odontocera ornaticollis Bates 1870

Let's wait a specialist from south America fauna...

I am no a specialist from south America fauna... but darker legs, black pronotal band anteriorly united... I'd say Odontocera ornaticollis.

In all case, ornaticollis is the older species and I do not know if auropilosa is really valid.
In fact, in the original description, Tippmann confronted his new species to O. triliturata Bates 1870 (here), a species that has nothing to do with auropilosa.
Evidently, I did not know ornaticollis
