Blister beetle? - Meloe angusticollis

Blister beetle? - Meloe angusticollis
Rochester, Monroe County, New York, USA
April 16, 2010
Meloe impressus?

I hope I'm right on the ID. I submitted this because there are no New York images other than September.

probably Meloe angusticollis Say -- det. J.D. Pinto
Moved from Oil Beetles.

Moved from Meloe impressus. Probably not M. impressus, as all records for that species are late in the year. This is probably a different species active in the spring.

agree not impressus
I agree that not impressus as that species has sparse fine pronotal puntation and this beetle clearly has dense and coarse punctation on the pronotum. Maybe angusticollis?

Moved from ID Request.

Meloe sp.
