Ghost Tiger Beetle
My favourite insect is the Tiger Beetle, not only are they the fastest insect in the world, they are known for their aggressive predatory habits. This Ghost Tiger Beetle (Ellipsoptera lepida) blended so perfectly in the white sand that he lived up to his name, Ghost. Found at the Larose Forest, Limoges, Ontario, Canada. Conservation Status: imperiled (N2N3) in Canada (NatureServe).
''Ellipsoptera lepida'', the ghost tiger beetle, or the little white tiger beetle, is a species of flashy tiger beetle in the family Carabidae. It is found in Central America and North America. It is a state threatened species in Minnesota.
