metallic woodborer - Melanophila atropurpurea

metallic woodborer - Melanophila atropurpurea
Candelaria, Presidio County, Texas, USA
August 21, 2018
Found near where we were running mercury vapor lights, near the Rio Grande River flood plain.

Moved from Actenodes mendax.

This is Melanophila, probably m. atropurpurea

Thank you very much
for the correction!
