Description

Habitus as in Fig. 1b. Body length 10.1-10.5 mm. Coloration of head and pronotum metallic blue, green or blue-green (Fig. 2b); antennae and mouthparts orange, except antennomeres 4-11 covered with darker brown setae; elytra and abdomen light brown to brown, except intersegmental membranes yellow, sternite VIII and posterior 1/3 of sternite VIII orange; legs and pronotal hypomeron orange to brown.

Head transverse, width: length ratio = 1.38; surface of epicranium flat to slightly convex; with medium-sized umbilicate punctures throughout the surface except medially, distance between punctures varies but typically equals 1-2 times of puncture. Eyes large, length of eyes / length of head = 0.68, distance between eyes as wide as 1.28 times length of eye.

Pronotum subquadrate, width: length ratio = 1.10; with scattered large umbilicate punctures, distance between punctures varies but typically equals diameter of puncture. Mesoscutellum with confluent medium-sized punctures. Elytra with large, confluent punctures; each row with approximately 15 punctures (measured at middle of elytron). Abdominal tergites III-V with weakly delineated curved (arch-like) carina.

Secondary sexual structures (Fig. 5c). Males with posterior border of sternite VII with shallow U-shaped emargination; sternite VIII with deep [but not as deep as in S. diaspartos  ], broad U-shaped emargination medially; sternite IX with shallow V-shaped emargination medially. Females with no obvious secondary sexual structures. Aedeagus as in Fig. 7; parameres divided to base into two lobes; lobes narrower and shorter than median lobe; in dorsal view each lobe converging to rounded apex; in lateral view paramere slightly convex; with peg setae (sensory spinules) as shown in Fig. 7c, concentrated near apex of lobes. Median lobe in dorsal view converging to broad pointed apex; with wide bicuspid dorsal tooth; in lateral view becoming narrower near apex.
