I saw this guy while on vacation in Arkansas. I loved his metallic coloring! I started researching to put a name to him, and much to my surprise, I found a similar picture on your site a few pages back! I hope I am correct in assuming this is a fiery searcher.
Hot Springs, Arkansas
Congratulations on your proper identification of this Fiery Searcher, Calosoma scrutator, one of the Caterpillar Hunters.
