Ant-like Tiger Beetle - Parvindela cursitans - female

Ant-like Tiger Beetle - Parvindela cursitans - Female
Hwy 60 at Mississippi River, Mississippi County, Missouri, USA
June 20, 2009
Though not yet formally recorded from Missouri, good populations of this species have been found in wet bottomland forest along the Mississippi River in southeast Missouri. Unlike most tiger beetle species, which prefer open, sunny situations, these beetles are found almost exclusively within forested areas with an open understory on sandy/loam soils.

Full-sized photograph and more details can be found on my website in the post: Ant-like Tiger Beetle.
