Wow sensacional !!!
No, that is definitely one of the blister beetles (Family Meloidae). The Bombardier beetle belongs to the Family Carabidae. Most carabids also have some form of chemical defense, but the bombardier beetle's is unique in that the spray is the result of an explosive chemical reaction.
Isnt this a bombadier beetle?
Lovely. We get these in Southern California too.
