A Few Notes on Tiger Beetles

I was searching the internet to find information on field marks to separate Hairy-necked Tiger Beetle from Bronzed Tiger Beetle when I came across resource. Its significance is it shows a photo of a tiger beetle larvae. Mystery solved!

I had photographed the above strange creature running across the sand along the Wisconsin River yesterday having no clue as to its identity other than it was clearly some larval creature.If I owned a field guide for tiger beetles its identity might have been more apparent.
