Description

Hesitant to call this a master blister beetle, as the elytra is not black, but red. Unable to determine what else it might be, however. So plain old "blister beetle" it is.

Description from Wikipedia

Blister beetles are beetles (Coleoptera) of the family Meloidae, so called for their defensive secretion of a blistering agent, cantharidin. There are approximately 7,500 known species worldwide. Many are conspicuous and some aposematically colored, announcing their toxicity to would-be predators.

No range data available.
