Heil Ranch Open Space near Lyons, Boulder County, Colorado, USA
April 13, 2016
Size: BL ~6.5 mm
This female, taken at the Picture Rock Trailhead at about 5600' around 10 am, shows off the enlarged abdomen. Always like this? or related to egg-laying? We did see lots of golden eggs on dock leaves. Any help with this ID is much appreciated.

Moved, Gastrophysa cyanea
Moved from Leaf Beetles.
