false blister beetle - Oxacis sericea

false blister beetle - Oxacis sericea
Wendel, Lassen County, California, USA
July 3, 2006

Moved tentatively but feelin' good about it
Moved from Oxacis.

Wendell vs. Wendel?

 
Fixed
with just one L.

Moved

Not a blister beetle.
I'd be willing to bet it is a false blister beetle, family Oedemeridae. the pronotum (top of thorax) looks all wrong for a meloid.

 
Good impersonater
Thanks for the ID Eric!!
