[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This large carabid was captured on a fruit tree in last summer near Eber Lake (Afyon Province). Its lenght is more than 3 cm. In Karadeniz region, it is called as "kantar böceği".
This very beautiful species, not only very colourful, but also the biggest Carabidae species of Western Palaearctic. This blue insect is a member of the genus Procerus species, most probably P. gigas (Coleoptera: Carabidae: Carabini).

Many thanks to Radomir Jaskula (cicindela)
for his helps.

Hello Ahmet!
Very nice species, not only very colourful (blue Carabidae are rather rare), but also very big one. I think it is a member of Procerus species, most probably P. gigas (Coleoptera: Carabidae: Carabini) - the biggest Carabidae species of Western Palaearctic :>
TFS this great insect and best greetings,
Radomir
