Hi i was taking pictures for my homework when i ran across this bug and i was wondering what it is?
What kind of picture taking homework are you doing? This amazing beetle is one of the Blister Beetles and it is known as a Desert Spider Beetle or Inflated Beetle. Blister Beetles have complex life cycles with the larval stage undergoing radical metamorphosis, passing through stages where it is grub-like and stages where is it more mobile. According to BugGuide: “Larvae have been found in subterranean nests of solitary bees.”
