|scientific name Chrysobothris vulcanica |
LeConte's Ch. vulcanica name has priority over Chamberlin's Ch. canadensis name. The size alone distinguishes this beetle from all other Chrysobothris species in Alberta, ranging from 15 to 17 mm. The body is brownish black with a faint purplish reflection. The male examined is 15.5 mm and the female 16.0 mm. The type series for Ch. canadensis consisted of 2 males and 4 females.
This species is known from Alberta, British Columbia, and south to California (Fisher 1942, Bright 1987).
