One rather unique tiger beetles that occurs in Virginia is Ellipsoptera marginata – I photographed this species back in late June of 2009 at Bethel Beach Natural Area Preserve where I was assisting in a survey for Habroscelimorpha dorsalis dorsalis.
Bethel Beach is a salt marsh habitat with scattered, low dunes; I found these beetles running quickly about near the shoreline, skittishly flitting away as I approached. Photographing this species was a lengthy process, as they are so flighty, but I finally crawled up a couple of individuals and was able to get a couple of shots.
This species occurs from the Gulf coast of Florida up to Maine on shoreline habitats. Quite active, this species is active both during the day and at night; it will regularly come to lights. The hallmark of this species is the disjointed middle maculation; they share this with a closely species, E. hamata, which occurs along the Gulf coast.
