Pogonus Dejean, 1821
status

 

Genus Pogonus Dejean, 1821 

Pogonus  sp.

This may be the first record for this tribe in Hong Kong, though Bowring wrote in a letter dated 2 nd June 1851, that in the spring he had caught "one or two species like Pogonus  " (Anon, 1851) presumably from Hong Kong. The imago is quite similar to P. chalceus (Marsham 1802)  , but with paler legs, antennae and apical quarter of elytra. Material: Ƌ W.T.L., 6.vii. 15. Biology: Imago found July. Can be attracted to light. It seems to prefer vertical surfaces on which it was quite agile.
