Epomis beetles

For nearly a decade I studied Epomis beetles and their interactions with amphibians (read my blog post about them here). These ground beetles feed exclusively on amphibians during their larval stage. The adult beetles are generalist predators that prey on many animals, but occasionally go after amphibians as well. This gallery represents some of the photos I have taken over the course of the research.
