Description

I suspect this is Cicindela unipunctata, of which the WV DNR guide to tiger beetles says: "The few records of this beetle in West Virginia almost
certainly are due to its elusive adult behavior. By running for cover
under leaf litter, adults are difficult to see and capture. With more
searching and trapping, this species will likely be collected more
frequently, and undoubtedly be found to occur over a wider area in
West Virginia than has been reported."
