Lebia? - Lebia solea

Lebia? - Lebia solea
Dixie Plantation, Charleston County, South Carolina, USA
August 26, 2007
Size: 5mm
This little beetle looks like a Lebia... maybe L. solea?

Carabidae : Lebiini : Lebia solea
Lebia solea appears most likely based on pale reddish forebody & legs, wrinkled head, longitudinal banding pattern on non-metallic elytra. South Carolina is lucky to have an excellent illustrated key to *all* of its ground beetle species in: "Ground Beetles and Wrinkled Bark Beetles of South Carolina" - J. Ciegler (2000), Clemson University, ISBN 0-615-11426-1.
