Odd insect in Saguaro Park
I took this in Saguaro National Park today, thought the pattern on the wings was unusual…any ideas?
You have taken a most awesome photo of a most awesome insect, the Iron Cross Blister Beetle in the genus Tegrodera. Your photo has the aesthetic of a safari photo of a large animal. There are several possible species, including Tegrodera aloga which is not represented on BugGuide.
