Metallic Beetle - Chrysobothris lateralis

Metallic Beetle - Chrysobothris lateralis
San Pedro River Valley, SE of San Manuel, Pinal County, Arizona, USA
May 22, 2012
Very elusive, but seems to stay to the same dead Velvet Mesquite branch over 2 days, Sonoran desert scrub, elev 2600 feet; I would guess a Metallic Wood-boring beetle, but unsure if correct or what kind. Thank you for your help!
