Buprestidae - Agaeocera gentilis
red sand dunes approx. 35 km E. of El Paso nr. Hueco Mountains along Hwy. 62, El Paso County, Texas, USA

Size: 12-15mm
These buprestids were common on Sphaeralcia sp. leaves at this sandy dune shrubland. I thought they might be Buprestis sp. but I'll let the beetle people decide.
