Wedge shaped beetle - Macrosiagon limbata

Wedge shaped beetle - Macrosiagon limbata
Jefferson County Park, Jefferson County, Iowa, USA
July 19, 2018
This beetle landed on one of the participants arm during our kids beetle program during Bug Week 2018. We were in a prairie area. Sorry photo is not better but cell phones are not known for great depth and clarity for such a small insect. Too bad we did not see more! Distinct markings help with ID.
