J.K. Chan collector. Org. from WSU Collection, 2nd label hand written "Meloe americanus" no det. BG shows no M. americanus east of Rockies. Yet Discover Life shows one in B.C. and one in Idaho. M. Hatch in volume 4 of Beetles of the Pacific Northwest pg. 111 shows "M. americanus subsp. occidentalis" which I believe this is. Perplexed, help please. Confirmation/correction, and further placement would be appreciated.
