Size: BL ~ 8.5 mm
We see these meloids most years, mainly on Wild Geranium as with this individual, or on Yarrow. Here the lateral view shows the red abdomen as well as head and thorax. Elytra are black. The galeae are fairly short. My best guess would be Nemognatha sparsa. I am posting an other individual who was photographed this year on yarrow for a dorsal view.
Any help with this identification is most appreciated.
