12.5 mi. SW Benson - French Joe Canyon, Cochise County, Arizona, USA September 13, 2016 Size: ~ 11 mm
Collected on yellow flowers. Thorax metallic green and elytra dark metallic blue, what a beauty. Believe this is yet another in the genus Acmaeodera? Confirmation/correction, and further placement would be appreciated.
