Elytra-less longhorn

A rather unusual discovery on a Renhold roadside. A longhorn beetle without any elytra (wing cases). I don't know how this came about, there are a couple of "wounds" on the thorax, and the wings look a little bit torn, so possibly attacked by a preditor, or maybe just born this way? I'm not even sure bout the species, but possibly Anaglyptus mysticus?
