buprestidae~ ? species - Dicerca divaricata

I'm leaning towards
Dicerca divaricata because of the pointy tip on the bottom elytra, but D. lurida looks similar

Moved for expert review to Buprestidae
...had the same two thoughts Steve did below

Moved from ID Request.

looks like Dicerca or Poecilonota
I would guess the former but that's just a guess

thanks! trying to look through images but it's SO slow lol

it gets faster
as you recognize more genera. Alternatively, take a look at the Evans book on eastern beetles. It's excellent

ok great, thanks
