Apologies for the white debris that made its way into this photo. I will try to take photos later on but wanted to post ASAP as BugGuide did not yet have an image for this neat species from the Florida Keys.

For more information on C. aliena (pp. 4-7) as well as other neat Cotinis spp. feel free to check out the following resource:

Woodruff, R. (2008). The genus Cotinis Burmeister in the eastern United States, with description of a new species from the Florida Keys, including a checklist of the genus (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Cetoniinae). Insecta Mundi, 584.

Moved from Cotinis.
