Owens Lake, south shore, Inyo County, California, USA May 12, 2005 Size: 14 mm
Cicindela tenuicincta, another Great Basin species.
This species is easily confused with Cicindela tranquebarica,
but has a shorter front maculation ending in an expanded wedge,
and all maculations are connected by a marginal band. The rear legs are
relatively short, however, that is difficult to see in this photo.
Occurs from Utah westerly to eastern California and southeastern Oregon.
