Noted in Southeast NH on May 29th about 4PM. It was crawling on top of my pool filter. Haven’t seen this one before.

Blister Beetle

Dear boxav8r,
The distinctive coloration identifies this beetle as Lytta sayi, one of the Blister Beetles without a common name,  though some texts may refer to it as Say’s Blister Beetle.  According to Bugguide, it is found in the Northeastern portions of North America.

Great answer! And fast!  Thank you. Pete

    I just saw this bug in Texas (Dallas/Ft. Worth area)! On the web, it talks about northeast U.S. and Canada…what’s it doing down here??
