Metallic Wood-boring Beetle
Chrysobothris femorata species-group


Chrysobothris femorata
This interesting beetle landed on my car window in
North Ogden Canyon, Weber County, Utah.
They are
 thought to only attack weakened or
damaged trees,
according to Bugguide.  I love those alien-looking
eyes.  © Carol Davis 6-3-2018
