Cowpath Tiger Beetle
Six-spotted Tiger Beetle
Private property with restored prairie and several bogs
Rice County, Minnesota
Under a rotting piece of Cabbage Tree trunk.
I think this is the right species, but I'm not completely certain... Based on:
lavae in burrow (4mm Dia)
Pic taken at night.
Large ground beetle aspied from my velocipede. Probably Megadromus antarcticus but didn't stop to check.
Beetle was legging it across the tarmaced rail trail
