Description

Several out of 20-30 individuals observed on patches of dry, loose sand along a pipeline clearing in upland longleaf pine and oak forest

There are three species of green cicendeline tiger beetles in this area: Festive/Rugate Tiger Beetle (Cicindela scutellaris rugata), Six-spotted Tiger Beetle (Cicindela sexguttata), and Splendid Tiger Beetle (Cicindela splendida ludoviciana). All have been reported to have some fall activity, although Six-spotted Tiger Beetles are predominantly active in the spring, with very few records into September and October.

The green and blue-green color, rounded and domed shape, multiple hairs in the first antenna segment, and especially the black labrum in the females indicate Festive/Rugate Tiger Beetle (vs. white in the other local green species). However, the faint spots on the females are not reported in Rugate Tiger Beetles, although they do occur in Festive Tiger Beetles in some other areas. The spots also seem a bit different from those on the other green species known in this area (Cicindela sexguttata & Cicindela splendida ludoviciana).

Adult & juvenile.

In the adult, note the dark gray back (vs. light gray in similar Herring Gull), extensive dark trailing edge under the wings (vs. limited dark tips in Herring Gull), and bright yellow legs (vs. pink legs in Herring Gull).
