immature insects
I’ve attached photos of an immature tiger beetle that was found on the beach (Cumberland Island off the GA coast) and one of an immature katydid. I was wondering if it is possible to identify them to species just from the photos of the immatures.

Hi Anthony,
Surely someone can answer your question, sadly, we cannot. The Tiger Beetle Larva is a wonderful image.

    Based on the location and habitat, the larva is the Eastern Beach Tiger Beetle (Habroscelimorpha dorsalis). These larvae are actually known to use wheel locomotion.
