Agrilus anxius (Buprestidae)
the bronze birch borer
Slender, sub-cylindrical 7-11 mm long. Dark colour, olive-bronze, streamlined.
Ivory coloured. Typical Buprestid, with a wide second thoracic segment and
flattened ribbon-like abdominal segments. Legless.
Primary concern is for attacks on ornamental species. As the borer kills
weakened and injured trees, care must be taken to keep trees in good health.
