Barr, W.F. 2008. Two new species of Agrilus Curtis 1825 from Arizona and Texas, with a new synonymy in Agrilus (Coleoptera: Buprestidae). Zootaxa 1681: 31-36.

Abstract

Two new species of the genus Agrilus Curtis, are described:
A. montosae n. sp. from Arizona and
A. bespencus n. sp. from Texas.
A new synonymy is proposed: A. pubescens Fisher 1928 (= A. parapubescens Knull 1934), syn. nov.
Also, joint ecological and distributional associations are presented for A. montosae, through the co-presence of A. pectoralis Waterhouse, A. near impexus Horn, A. pubescens Fisher and another buprestid, Chrysobothris lateralis Waterhouse.
