Brought one home to try to get a better picture. Cristian Martinez collected it so he can take microscopic images of anything people might want to see. Looks like he was eating the geranium leaf while waiting for his photo shoot.

Found one of these today
Too small for me to photograph, nice pics!

I think it has to be Pachyschelus purpureus purpureus
and probably dissection would be the only way to be more sure.
