Six-spotted tiger beetle

Cicindela sexguttata

These tiger beetles are easy to recognize with their iridescent green or blue-green colouring and white-spotted elytra (wing covers). As their name indicates, they usually have six spots, but some specimens have only five, or even two or none at all. They have large eyes and powerful sickle-like mandibles. Their bodies are 10 to 14 mm long.

The brownish larvae have dark heads with large mandibles.
