A small reddish NZ native beetle, found in my house. I released it back to the wild, after the pics :)
The species is considered a blister beetle, but apart ot two tiny itchy spots in my hand (wich I' not sure they were caused by the insect), I had no other problem... http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/33305...
