Buprestid - Agrilus defectus
Groton, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA

Size: 6mm

Moved from Agrilus.

Agrilus defectus LeConte
This one is a male, the genetalia was yanked and Rick made the id. I have some pinned specimens of this species that I have been intending to add to the guide.

...I can't be more specific than Agrilus sp.

That's ok
I saved the specimen for Joshua B.
