Bright metallic green, medium-sized beetle. Ivory markings vary greatly from obsolete to resembling Cicindela purpurea.
Found these specimens along a sandy and rocky river beach.

I've never seen this before! Amazing!
I never see any tiger beetles where I am now. When I saw them in TN I couldn't get a good photo. You must have plenty of patience. ;)
