Platt Tiger Beetle Cicindela parowana ssp. platti

Observer

Description

Fuzzy headed! Relatively common on this cool day. Few other tiger beetles out, however - saw 3 tranqs and one single western tiger beetle. This location had impressive tiger beetle activity last September (5 species not including this one in good numbers on the mudflats). But maybe it's been too cold for those other species to be active - it's been a cold spring. Observed about 12 of these parowana within about 45 minutes of walking around this area. None in mate guard position. Final image is of the apparent larval holes

several around a lilac bush - courting perhaps. Very active, but often returning to the same perch. The shield was shiny looking, as if moist

brisk and cold, but saw about 3 of these large bumbles feeding on Astragalus over about an hours' walk. I think I see the short cheek and other features of Morrison's, but not certain
