|scientific name Chrysobothris verdigripennis |
July, August and early September.
This is one of the larger species of Chrysobothris in Alberta, up to 16 mm. The tips of antennal segments are tipped with orange or yellow. The clypeus is unmargined helping to distinguish these beetles from those of dentipes. The specimens examined are not quite the typical colour according to Bright (1987), in lacking the general green colour dorsally.
This species is recorded from a variety of conifers, including spruce, pine, larch and balsam fir (Fisher 1942, Bright 1987).
This species occurs from western Alberta, east to Nova Scotia and south into the north-eastern United States (Fisher 1942, Bright 1987).
