This may be...
...what I am calling Chrysobothris fiskei, but there is considerable confusion in the literature between this species and C. bimarginicollis. Based on my examinations, I believe fiskei is fairly wide ranging across the southwest, while the latter is restricted to Arizona.

Is this the only specimen? I'll be including a discussion and records about these two species in my next "notes" paper - I'd love to include this record as well.
