Project Noah is a tool to explore and document wildlife and a platform to harness the power of citizen scientists everywhere.
That's okey Gordon, I did forget this one myself :P
Stian, Missed your comment from a month ago, but good job figuring it out to the two of you!
I think that too Gaia!
I think the last comment you made as a suggestion is the right one Stian, it looks very similar to Carabus nemoralis ;)
@Gordon - Could it be Copper and Purple Beetle - Carabus nemoralis
Thanks Gordon, I'll check it out ;)
In North America we have a purple-edged ground beetle or Woodland Ground Beetle (Carabus sylvosus). I don't know if they are circumpolar, but you may want to look at this as a starting place. See http://bugguide.net/node/view/236482/bgp... as an example. Note that the photographer on this page indicated that while his subject looks blue, it was really purple.
