Hairy Buprestid - Paratyndaris prosopis

Hairy Buprestid - Paratyndaris prosopis
Desoto, Dallas County, Texas, USA
June 6, 2017
Size: 9mm
The closest I could find in browsing the Guide was Paratyndaris prosopsis, and that image had orange spots instead of this pale yellow. Found on my fence under a Live Oak, although there is a Red Oak right next to it. Three days of torrential rain and wind always leave something interesting on the fence!

Correct
this is Paratyndaris prosopsis, the orange spots in the other pic is probably from bad lighting or old specimen, but in reality it's found with yellow spots. The iridescent blue halo around the 2 pairs of maculae can be seen in your 2nd pic

Moved tentatively to Paratyndaris
Moved from ID Request.

 
Thanks!
I hadn't even noticed the blue -- but all of my sunlit pictures I have show it too. I'll add one more.
