Mike, why are these Texas specimens
in your SE Arizona beetle survey?

see fine print near top of SEAZ beetle survey page
"Note, some beetles were photographed outside of Arizona, but all shown here should occur in AZ."

No specimen
matching this image was in any of the wet material you sent Mike, including the "Sept 24" subset.

I probably released that individual, thinking its det. wasn't in doubt. I'll send you the next one I come across if you like.

Additional wet carabid material
is always appreciated for my ongoing comparative work. The P.W.Messer reference collection currently holds only one "Calosoma sayi", a female from MS looking for a mate.

Your image does indeed support "Calosoma sayi".
