Here’s a sneak peek at the critter that will be featured in tomorrow’s post. Any ideas? Hint: this is the first insect I’ve featured from the state in which it lives.

    Well, it’s a Cicindelidia, and it’s got 6 setae on the labrum. I’d say either C. rufiventris cumatilis or C. politula. Since you did mention C. politula habitat photos on Facebook, I’ll guess that. I’m not entirely confident it is identifiable from this view alone.
