spmn in the OMNH, Norman, Okla.

Moved from Buprestis salisburyensis, which determination had been made by K. Stephan, who undoubtedly was the collector. Although this specimen appears more robust than any of the few of B. decora in my collection, the punctation of the pronotum and elytra, and especially the structure of the elytral apices, puts it in the latter species.
