** Agrilus cuprescens Ménétriès. This   introduced European species, considered a pest of raspberries and roses, was first reported from Oregon by Nelson et al (1996) as A. cupreus Redtenbacher   (lapsus calami).

Chrysobothris idahoensis Barr. Deschutes Co., Dutchman Flat   , nr. Bachelor Butte, 6398, 23­VIII­69, under Eriogonum, KJG, and Tumalo Mt.   , 7200, 10­VIII­91, on Eriogonum sp.   , RLW (ODAC, RLWE); Jackson Co., Mt. McLoughlin, 8000, 14­VIII­35 (OSAC); Mt. Ashland, 6600­6800, 8.8­10.3 mi W Jct. I­5, 8­VIII­73, on host: Eriogonum umbellatum, RLW & RLP   ; Klamath Co., 17 mi S Chemult, 11­VII­69, on dead twig Purshia tridentata, RLW   ; Pelican Butte, 8000, 14­VIII­69, under Eriogonum, KJG   ; Crater Lake Natl. Park: flat below Red Cone, and W. Rim, 3­VIII­68, on Eriogonum sp.   , KJG, RLW; Whitebark Pine picnic area, 7400, 30­VII­88, on Eriogonum sp.   , RLW (ODAC, RLWE). This species was characterized by Barr (1971) as having “moderately distinct discal foveae”. These

foveae are, at best, indistinct in the specimens from Deschutes County. This species is questionably distinct from C. roguensis Beer   , which uses a different species of Eriogonum   as its host; both belong to a difficult complex of species that needs much further study.
