This beetle was very shiny. Purple red on top and green under. Slow moving and didn't seem afraid.
I found him in my father in laws driveway.
I've never seen a beetle like this one.
From your links I'm going to have to agree with you.
I believe this is a species of Blister Beetle. Possibly Nuttall's Blister Beetle - Lytta nuttalli.http://bugguide.net/node/view/34945Some examples similar to yours:http://bugguide.net/node/view/60108/bgim...http://bugguide.net/node/view/663605/bgi...
