Two straight spines on the foretibia can be clearly seen in one image. This narrows ID down to E bispinosa, E oregona, and E punctipennis. The maxillary palpi shape is c/w this species, not punctipennis. Vestiture not reduced as in oregona. (see Journal Kansas Entomological Society 48:429-452 and JP Schmidt (2008) Blister Beetles (Meloidae) of Colorado, #7 in series: Insects of Western North America, published by CSU.
