buprestid - Anthaxia caseyi - female

buprestid - Anthaxia caseyi - Female
near Quincy, Plumas County, California, USA
June 28, 2006
Found on oak.

Anthaxia (Haplanthaxia) caseyi caseyi Obenberger
I figured Rick would know what this is so I sent it along. He said "It is the female of Anthaxia (Haplanthaxia) caseyi caseyi Obenberger ( used to be A. deleta ). The male is all green."

These were all over
one particular bush I found, maybe 20 of them. I couldn't get close enough to photograph them on the leaves, they would drop off when I got near.
