Blister Beetle in Anza Borrego
March 27, 2010
Hi Bugman! I wanted to share these pictures of a Blister Beetle we saw 3/27/10 in Anza Borrego desert state park. It was really pretty and was running along a patch of sand.

We need to finish our book by April 1, and we hope to be able to escape to the desert for at least a day trip before Spring Break ends, and perhaps we will encounter some Master BLister Beetles, Lytta magister, while we are there. We suspect the rain pattern this season might produce a spectacular profusion of desert vegetation, which may also result in more insects than normal.
