Six Spotted Tiger Beetle

Cicindela sexguttata

Description:

Lovely green Six Spotted Tiger Beetle found in Jonesboro, Georgia, USA. Hunting with a group of four or five others for small ants between cobblestones in a dry, sandy area.* Easily identifiable by enormous white mandibles and striking color.

Habitat:

North America, not usually found lower than around Kentucky. I've lived in Georgia for 25 years and had never seen one, let alone four until that day.

Notes:

*It should be noted that these beetles were not observed hunting as a group, just in the same area. They are not known for being gregarious insects.
