might well be the earliest country record...

Moved from Agrilus.

Agrilus smaragdifrons Ganglbauer
Agrilus smaragdifrons Ganglbauer. This is a fairly recent introduction into the U.S. from eastern Asia. You can Google the name and see some of the reports from Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

More information desired
It would help to know the size of this beetle and on what plant it was seen. If it was collected, then one of us can verify the ID. If pressed, I would guess it is A. arcuatus.

 
I just went over my notes
and see this beetle was 7mm long. I don't have any host plant info as this beetle was caught using sweep netting of various plants. It was released after photographing.
