Chariessa catalina - Red and iridescent blue/black beetle - Chariessa catalina

Chariessa catalina - Red and iridescent blue/black beetle - Chariessa catalina
Prescott, Yavapai County, Arizona, USA
December 11, 2019
Size: ~1.5 cm
Red and iridescent blue/black beetle. Found in firewood cut from black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia). Beetle emerged upon splitting the wood for burning. I apologize for the poor image quality. My best guess is some sort of blister beetle, although the antennae structure seems to differ from the specimens I found here.
