4 miles West of Winnsboro, Wood County, Texas, USA May 19, 2016 Size: ~ 2.6 mm
One of the rare times I've gotten a Buprestid that came to U/V lights. A Buprestid of sorts, male? Elytra a dark blue/purple metallic coloration, with the thorax and head a sort of dark greenish metallic sheen. Confirmation/correction, and further placement would be appreciated.
