|scientific name Cymindis vaporariorum |
Xerophilous, on gravel, frequently mixed with sand. Less often on dry peat soil (Lindroth 1992).
Most adults collected in June and July, but likely are around all summer.
Colour dark brown to rufous. Antennae, palps, and legs testaceous. Head and pronotum very punctuate and setose. Elytra oblong, larger apically, striae finely punctuated (Lindroth 1992). Intervals pubescent and punctuated. The sinuate apex and incomplete basal margin of elytra distinguish it from C. unicolor Kirby (Jeannel 1942). Wing dimorphism evident. Brachypterous form with wings less than 1/2 length of elytra; macropterous form fully capable of flight (Lindroth 1992). Length 7.5-9 mm.
Likely fall mating and larval hibernation, with many adults hibernating as well (Lindroth 1992).
