near Karr Creek at SR-68, East Feliciana Parish, Louisiana, USA April 10, 2008 Size: body length 13.7 mm.
This appears to be a Buprestid. Maybe Chrysobothris. This specimen has greenish tarsi, a feature noted in images of some members of the Chrysobothris femorata complex.
Proper placement would be appreciated.
