Your letter to the bugman:  Hi Daniel,
As promised, here are three shots of the female M. limbata.  I watched her for quite some time, hoping I’d see her interacting with a host bee or wasp, but no luck.  There was another male on a patch of mountain mint in the garden, which I understand is one of their preferred plants.  So, maybe before their brief lives are over, I’ll be able to observe some behaviors.

Hi Deborah,
Thanks so much for sending images of a Female Wedge Shaped Beetle,
Macrosiagon limbata, to accompany the image you sent a few days ago of the male from the same species.
