Carabus nitens

Having searched out my trusty and very dog-eared RES key to Carabids I was pleased that the photo was good enough to key out the carabid Mollie found on Sunday. it is indeed Carabus nitens. The North York's Moors is a stronghold for the species but so far all the references indicate it is very local.
