Agrilus cochisei Knull
Salvador conveyed these specimens to me so I was able to identify them conclusively. This is Agrilus cochisei Knull. This species has been rarely collected since its description in 1948 from 2 specimens from southeastern Arizona. Henry Hespenheide and I collected a few in 1980 in Hidalgo Co., New Mexico, and Rick Westcott and coworkers have reported specimens in the literature from Chihuahua and Durango, Mexico. Thanks Salvador, an extremely nice catch!!

Moved from Agrilus.

Thank you Blaine!
