|scientific name Agrilus burkei |
This species is very similar to A. politus, differing in host choice and colour of the elytra. The elytra are deep blue to bluish green in colour. See comments under Agrilus politus. The burkei listed below may not be burkei, as in two cases the beetles are associated with willow not alder.
Reported to breed on alder (Bright, 1987). In Alberta, some specimens were associated with willow.
This species occurs in southern British Columbia and southern Alberta south through the western United States (Bright, 1987).
