Cicindela (Cicindela) sexguttata
Cicindela sexguttata is a very common tiger beetle across the eastern half of the United States, including Alabama and Mississippi. It probably occurs throughout both states, with the possible exception of the Gulf Coast. This striking species is normally marked with six white spots on the elytra, which gives it its common name. However, individuals lacking some (or all) of the spots are sometimes encountered. Adults are primarily active during the spring, although they can occasionally be seen through the summer and as late as September. Habitat is usually along forest edges or along forested trails or other openings.
