Melandryidae - Osphya varians
Oka, Deux-Montagnes County, Quebec, Canada
June 24, 2015
Size: 7mm
Sweeping in a deciduous forest nearby a marsh. I haven't seen any other Cantharidae with such spur on hind tibia.

Moved from Osphya.

Moved, I assume this is O. varians...
but not sure that far north!

Moved from ID Request.

Yes, that's it, it is already recorded from the province.
Thanks Blaine!
