Buprestis striata
North Anson, 44.8699, -69.9460, Somerset County, Maine, USA
June 25, 2020
Size: 15 mm
Sunning on a large, dead (probably for at least one year), but still standing Eastern White Pine (Pinus strobus) tree along Route 16. I mentioned in a recent post (see: ) that this species seems to be more common and also more vividly colored in 2020 as compared to prior years. Lateral view.
