Metallic Wood Boring Beetle, very shiny green with golden lines at edges of wing cases. Approximately 3/4" long and 1/4" wide at midpoint.
Trees and milled lumber. Larvae bore and then emerge as adult beetles. Average lifespan is 2-5 years.
I think it thrives on fir trees, but not sure at this point in my research. It does resemble the Jeweled Ash Borer Beetle, but is significantly a different species.
