June 14, 2010
This is a photo i took this weekend of just a couple of the beetles in out lupine patch, I was informed that they might be Blister Beetles. There were hundreds of them all over the flowers.

Dear Page-N-Thyme Farmers,
You are correct. These are Blister Beetles. Alas, we cannot confirm their identification on BugGuide because the page is currently unavailable, but we matched it to a photo we posted recently from New Hampshire. It appears it is Lytta sayi, a species with no common name.
