Liang & D. H. Kavanaugh 2006’’ [yellow label] .

Type locality. Java, Indonesia .

Diagnosis. Femora brown with apical fifth or sixth black; tarsal claws ( Fig. 62 View Figs ) with longest pectination subequal to width of tarsal claw base; elytra with outer angles slightly dentate; aedeagus with apical lamella moderately long, slightly digitiform, not thickened at apex ( Figs. 89–90 View Figs ).

Description. Length 9.2–10.2 mm, width 2.7–2.9 mm. Black, head, pronotum, and elytra with green luster, mixed with slight blue luster; apical third of Ant 1 and basal two thirds of Ant 3 black, basal two thirds of Ant 1, apical third of Ant 3, and Ant 4–11 brown or yellow; apical fifth or sixth of femora black, remainder brown or yellow; tibiae and tarsi brown or yellow. Head ( Fig. 34 View Figs ) wider than pronotum, HW/PW 5 1.18 (1.13–1.23); vertex convex, coarsely punctate; Ant 1/ Ant 3 5 3.35 (3.24–3.46); labrum with medial lobe slightly protruded anteriorly; genae moderately tumid; eyes large, about 2.2 times as long as genae. Pronotum densely punctate, narrow, PL/PW 5 1.46 (1.40–1.50); lateral margins gradually widened from apical angles to middle, strongly sinuate before basal angles; basal angles protruded laterally; basal foveae quite deep; middle line shallow. Elytra long, slightly widened from base to apical third, then narrowed to apex in both sexes (more so in female); EL/EW 5 1.82 (1.70–1.86), EW/PW 5 2.23 (2.12–2.32); outer angles slightly dentate (similar to Fig. 40 View Figs ); interval flat, densely punctate. Protarsomere 3 slightly asymmetrical in male; tarsal claw with 5–6 long pectinations, length of the longest pectination subequal to width of claw base ( Fig. 62 View Figs ). Aedeagus with apical lamella moderately long, slightly digitiform, unthickened at apex ( Figs. 89–90 View Figs ).

Distribution. Presently known only from type locality.

Etymology. The new species is named for Java, its type locality.

Remarks. Members of this new species are similar to those of D. geniculatus (Klug) in having tumid genae, green body luster, and similar femoral and tibial color, but differ in having the ratio of Ant 1/Ant 3 smaller and the lamella of aedeagus not thickened ( Fig. 90 View Figs ). They are also similar to adults of D. ternatensis Chaudoir in the form of male genitalia, but differ from the latter in femoral color and in having more tumid genae ( Fig. 34 View Figs ) and smaller ratio of Ant 1/Ant 3.
