Trichiotinus lunulatus

Trichiotinus lunulatus
Hill Forest, Durham County, North Carolina, USA
June 16, 2005
Size: 10 mm
Dorsolateral view of captive. T. lunulatus is supposed to have a "V-shaped, sparsely punctate callus" on the vertex (rear top) of the head. (1) I'm not sure that I can see it here--perhaps. Compare to the similar T. bibens, which has an overall bronze color to elytra, finer, more uniform pubescence on pronotum and elytra, and lacks the lateral cretaceous (chalky) marks on the elytra: (1)



Note also green legs of T. lunulatus, brown/black legs of T. bibens.
