Buprestis apricans Herbst - Buprestis apricans

Buprestis apricans Herbst - Buprestis apricans
Southern Pines, Moore County, North Carolina, USA
March 1, 1903
Size: 19.8 mm
I would like to thank Bob Blinn at NCSU for loaning me some specimens to examine. There was another specimen of B. apricans with the same label info and a couple others that were collected in 1905 and 1906. They all looked as if they were collected last week. This one was in amazing shape especially for being 110 years old.
