|scientific name Chrysobothris cribraria |
The broadly rounded truncate clypeus is the most distinctive feature of this species. Other Chrysobothris species have a deeply emarginated clypeus, often a 'V' shaped notch. The body is black with a faint coppery to brassy tint. Each elytron has 4 longitudinal costae, the first is regular, the others are interrupted and irregular in the posterior half by a large shallow foveae.
Known from pine (Fisher 1942, Bright 1987). In Alberta the adults were associated with lodgepole pine and charred jack pine.
The beetles are found from the southern Northwest Territories east through Alberta to eastern Quebec and south in the eastern United States to Texas and Florida (Fisher 1942, Bright 1987).
