Can you help me name these beetles?
January 31, 2010
please could help me to identify these beetles, all were photographed in Santa Elena cloud forest in Costa Rica in december.
Hi again Miles,
As the label on your digital file indicates, you are aware that this is a Tiger Beetle in the subfamily Cicindelinae, but we are unable to locate a species name for you. Perhaps one of our readers will have better luck.
Comment provided by Truman
Looks like Pseudoxycheila tarsalis
Apparently it mimics a species of velvet ant
Thank you Truman. Once you provided a name, we found a photo on Flickr.
