|scientific name Agrilus granulatus populi |
June and July.
The coppery, greenish or bluish elytra with yellowish to white spots and pubescent head separate this species from the other members of the liragus complex. The specimens I have examined from British Columbia are shorter than anxius and liragus.
Similar to other members of the liragus complex. Adults prefer the smaller limbs of stressed or dying trees.
Uncommon; possibly a pest.
Reared from poplar.
The western subspecies, Agrilus granulatus populi is found from southern British Columbia and Alberta south to California (Bright 1987).
