Arizona Blister Beetle
I looked through all the identifications and have not seen any. I know that this beetle looks very much like the blister beetle. I have some good pictures of some that I took last week while hiking the back country mountains. I'm so new to this site ill have to figure out how to upload pics of some bugs.

Thank you
