Thanks, nice!
I'm glad I went through my old photos

 
Nicer than you think: first bugguide record for the species!
Priocera chiricahuae Knull, 1939

Decent description and *excellently done* line drawing of this species in:
Knull, J.N. 1939. "Four New Arizona Coleoptera (Cleridae, Corynetidae and Buprestidae)." Annals of the Entomological Society of America 32(1): 27-31.

As Knull puts it: "Brunneus above and below; abdomen lighter; each elytron with three small yellow spots, one at base, a lateral one in front of middle and another back of middle along suture... The color and markings of the dorsal surface will distinguish this species from the other three species occurring north of Mexico."

 
Love it!
thank you so much!
