Tiger beetle  - Parvindela terricola

Tiger beetle - Parvindela terricola
Colorado Springs, El Paso County, Colorado, USA
June 22, 2018
Size: approx 10 mm
This has been tentatively ID'd elsewhere as a Variable Tiger (Cylindera terricola), with the possibility of it being a Thin-lined Tiger (Cicindelidia tenuisignata) also debated. Looking for a second expert opinion.

Experts
The real tiger beetle experts these days frequent the facebook group - Cicindelidae. You might need to take this there. Having never seen C. tenuisignata or nominate C. terricola I'm not able to separate them. I know there is lots of C. terricola in eastern CO. I looked last summer in western KS but didn't find any.

 
Looks like C. terricola to me

I actually got the IDs from a guy in a Colorado arthropods group on FB! I'll check out this other one.
