Hello, my sons and I found this unusual insect in the park near our house in southern Alberta, Canada. We’ve never see one like it before and are quite curious as to what it might be! It was quite pretty with a bright purple, iridescent body and equally iridescent green head.
My Internet searching has turned up nothing – any ideas?

Dear Peripah,
This is a Blister Beetle from the genus
Lytta.  A similar looking Blister Beetle in the genus Lytta from Alberta was also submitted to our site in 2008.
