Agrilus - Agrilus obsoletoguttatus

Agrilus - Agrilus obsoletoguttatus
Pulaski County, Kentucky, USA
May 28, 2011
Size: 6 mm
Collected off of locust foliage (I think).

There are indistinct markings on the elytra, visible when viewed at an angle.

My attempt to key led to A. fallax. Host plant seems right too. Serrations of antennomeres begins at 4, no carina on pygidium, claws simply cleft, prosternal lobe not emarginate. There is a thick strip of white hairs medially on the prosternum, somewhat visible in the lateral view.

A. obsoletoguttatus
Matches my specimens, genitalia fit, too. A. fallax have a much broader apex on the lateral lobes.

 
I agree with that ID.
