Six Spotted Tiger Beetle

Dear BettyLou,
This is a harmless, beneficial, predatory Tiger Beetle, most likely an unspotted Six Spotted Tiger Beetle,
Cicindela sexguttata, which is pictured on BugGuide. where you will find this comment:  “C. sexguttata generally become less spotted as one goes west, so many individuals in Iowa are likely spotless.”
