Calochroa sexpunctata ( Fabricius, 1775) sensu Rivalier [as a synonym by Rivalier 1961: 125].

Cicindela (Calochroa) flavomaculata: Acciavatti & Pearson 1989:117 .

Calochroa flavomaculata: Wiesner 1992:106 .

Specimens examined. (N = 1) [ Thailand] 1♂ ( MHJ), Khon Kaen, X-XII. 1972, M. Sato leg.

Description. Internal sac everted dorsally in lateral view. DA largest in bladders; VA the second largest; VB the third largest; B same as large as BLR, DLL and VLR.

VA roundly everted right laterally, vested numerously with short and weakly chitinous spines.

VLR roundly everted apically. DA semicircular swollen right latero-dorsally. DLL roundly swollen basally. VB roundly swollen left latero-ventrally, vested numerously with short spines. BLR roundly swollen left laterally, vested numerously with short and weakly chitinous spines. B swollen right laterally. Flagellum very long and thin, S-shaped. Medial tooth short and dextral extending apically, curved abruptly.

Remarks. This species shares the characteristics of the position of each bladder with Calochroa bicolor and C. fabriciana but is distinguished from C. bicolor by the following characteristics: VA everted right laterally; VB vested with short spines; B roundly swollen; medial tooth curved abruptly. It also differs from C. fabriciana by the following characteristics: VA long everted; DLL without spines; VB vested with long spines; B roundly swollen; medial tooth short extending apically.
