identification This is the only species in North America in which the pronotum is almost entirely covered with long golden pubescence. The elytral epipleuron is orange except for a basal black wedge extending down from the basal black band. The metasternum has a "bald" area behind the mesocoxae.
range This is a species of eastern North America but has been found at Dinosaur Provincial Park and may be spreading westward from Saskatchewan and/or northward from Montana. Whether it will eventually range all across the southern part of province [like marginatus] or be restricted to the southeast [like guttula] remains to be seen.
notes Meaning of name: "full of hair." It refers to the very hairy pronotum of this species.
