Red Bug with red and blue wings
I happened to see this bug in my backyard. I had never seen one of these before and its color caught my attention. I tried to identify this bug by searching through the internet but wasn’t succesful. Can you help?

Net Winged Beetle

Hi Lorn,
We believe this is a Net Winged Beetle in the family Lycidae.  WE are hoping to get some expert opinion on this and we would advise you to check back on the posting for the next several days to see if there are any updates.  Our professional obligations have greatly increased with the beginning of a new academic year and we might not be able to email you any updates directly.

Eric Eaton Agrees
Yes, I agree with the family identification.
