What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Is this a Longhorn beetle (Phymatodes amoenus)?
March 29, 2010
I was hiking in the mountains in Ludlow, very rural area and came upon a small migration of these beetles. Some were tail to tail. They just seemed to pose on rocks and were in an area about 3 feet by 6 feet. What are these?

Master Blister Beetle

Dear without a preference,
This is the third photo we have posted in the past week of a Master Blister Beetle, Lytta magister, and we are considering making it the Bug of the Month for April.  It is found in the spring in deserts of Arizona and California as well as Mexico, Nevada and Utah.

thank you so kindly. I hope you have a beautiful day.
Delia
