New species of Polydrusus
This is a new species of Polydrusus I am describing. It is similar to P. hassayampus but in that species the legs are uniformly covered with bright green broad metallic scales and the elytral seta-like scales are long and pale. In the new one, the legs have a mix of different scale types and the elytral seta-like scales are very short, dense and black.

fantastic! a native one -- great addition
