locust flower beetle - Attalus scincetus

locust flower beetle - Attalus scincetus
Medford, (~25 miles east of Philadelphia, PA) Burlington County, New Jersey, USA
May 22, 2008
Size: 3-4mm
this little flower beetle came in with some locust tree flowers that I brought inside this evening. Credit the Mrs. for not smashing it, but rather asking "could this be #267 for the backyard?" I think it is - Attalus scincetus (Say). corrections welcome :)

You're crushing Frank Lutz, Tim!
I like the sound of that because there is an unscruplous political pollster of the same name :-) And Hats off to your wife for pitching in like that.

 
Thanks Jim,
although it's good to know that the future direction of our country is not riding on my count or Frank's (the 1940s Frank Lutz). And just for the record, I do try to uphold sound record keeping, so as not to unscruplously inflate the count. :)
