Buprestid - Lampetis drummondi
Chisos Basin road - below Green Gulch, Brewster County, Texas, USA
August 1, 2012
Not sure what tree it is on - some were on junipers, some where on flowers, but there were quite a few in the area along the road to the Chisos Basin in Big Bend National Park.

looks like Lampetis drummondi
This species seems associated with Salix in New Mexico, but apparently has a number of hosts.

Lampetis sp.
a buprestid specialist should narrow it down for you.
