 On Willow - Agrilus politus

On Willow - Agrilus politus
Granit Woods, Prescott, Yavapai County, Arizona, USA
May 26, 2009
Size: 6.8mm

Moved from Agrilus.

I'm gonna say Agrilus politus
I'm gonna say Agrilus politus....Henry will be able to verify it.

From Henry Hespenheide
It's A. politus if the antennae are serrate from the 4th segment,
although it's a little small for that species. If the antennae are
segmented from the 5th segment, it's probably A. egenus. The host of
egenus is Robinia neomexicana, and that of politus is willow, but the
plants can grow close together.

They are serrated
you can just about see it in the picture and better with the specimen under the scope
