20 miles north of Deming, NM, Sept 6, 2015, 11 pm. Left the porch light on, and got a whole bunch of these, plus 2 Praying Mantis, and some round black beetles. This has been a year of above avg rainfall, extra mice have drawn extra fauna.
Thank you Bugman!

This is a Charlie Brown Blister Beetle, Pyrota palpalis, and in our opinion, it is one of the best common insect names for a North American insect. The Charlie Brown Blister Beetle is reported from Texas to California according to Bugguide.
