Cicindela willistoni pseudosenilis

      While driving through eastern California with Sam earlier this month we stopped at Owens Lake hoping to find some tigers. The weather wasn't ideal with all the wind rushing through the valley, but we each somehow managed to collect a specimen of Cicindela willistoni pseudosenilis.

 Cicindela willistoni pseudosenilis W. Horn

While this species occurs in many places in the west, the subspecies C. w. pseudosenilis is restricted to the desert valleys of southeast California.
