Carabus serratus

University of Alberta E.H. Strickland Entomological Museum

SeasonalityAdults have been collected in May, June and August. IdentificationThis species is in the subgenus Hemicarabus.. Black, prothorax and elytra with violaceous margins. Prothorax with distinctly reflexed, posteriorly widened sides. Side margins of elytra strongly serrate behind the shoulder. Elytral sculpture very distinct, consisting of each three rows of oblong tubercles separated by four coarsely punctate striae. Length 16 to 24 mm.

Carabus taedatus

University of Alberta E.H. Strickland Entomological Museum

SeasonalityAdults have been collected in June to September. IdentificationThis species is in the subgenus Oreocarabus. A rather variable species, but common features are: Black, without any trace of metallic lustre, elytra often rufinistic. The raised margin of prothorax is better defined inwards than in nemoralis. The elytral sculpture is based on seven faint ridges on each interval between the rows of foveae but the ridges are irregular, often so obscure and confluent that the impression is of punctures arranged into winding rows. Length 16 to 26 mm.

Carabus nemoralis

University of Alberta E.H. Strickland Entomological Museum

SeasonalityAdults have been collected in May to October. IdentificationThis species, in the subgenus Archicarabus, is a European introduction. Black or dark piceous, upper surface more or less cupreous or greenish bronze, sides of prothorax, and often elytra, usually violaceous. Elytron with three rows of foveae and on each interval with suggestion of five ridges, so irregular and confluent as to give a scaly appearance. Length 21 to 26 mm.

Carabus maeander

University of Alberta E.H. Strickland Entomological Museum

SeasonalityAdults collected in May and June. IdentificationThis species is in the subgenus Homoeocarabus. Black, upper surface and prosternum as a rule pronouncedly metallic, varying from bronze to copper or green. The prothorax is more convex than in granulatus, with less flattened sides. In elytral sculpture it resembles granulatus: three rows of strong tubercles alternating with two unbroken, more or less winding ridges; but the sutural ridge is lacking. The elytral margin is feebly serrate behind the shoulder. Length 15 to 23.5 mm.

Carabus granulatus

University of Alberta E.H. Strickland Entomological Museum

SeasonalityThe only Alberta specimen was collected in September. IdentificationThis species, in the subgenus Carabus, is a European introduction. Black, upper surface and prosternum usually with rather dull brassy, sometimes greenish lustre. More slender than C. meander, with longer antennae and legs. The elytral sculpture is almost identical, except that a sutural ridge, inside the first row of tubercles, is at least suggested basally. Prothorax more pronouncedly square, with more broadly flattened sides. The elytral margin is not serrate behind the shoulders. Length 16 to 24 mm.
