Six-spotted Tiger Beetles are metallic green, sometimes blue, beetles with long legs, large sickle-shaped mandibles, and large bulging eyes. They are named for the six small white spots at the edges of their elytra (wing covers), although the number of spots varies.
Found on a wooden bench facing a small marsh area.
Also known as the Six-spotted Green Tiger Beetle.
