Medium sized Metallic Wood Boring beetle. This is the first time the species has been found in the state (as far as I can tell.) This specimen also has abnormal markings which may suggest a new subspecies. Found on Iowa State University's campus.
Specimen was collected and will be brought to the entomology department on campus for further identification.
