Our material of C. montei was identified based on the pronotum without black granulation; posterior half of prosternum not strongly swollen; fore femur longer than the lateral length of pronotum by less than 1 mm, with 1 tooth on each side of the base of the longitudinal sulcus, these teeth located closer to the apex of the femur than to the base; longitudinal sulcus of the fore femur with sulcal teeth, without distinct notch on the distal portion of the lateral margin; and parasterna of the last abdominal segment ending in large, thumblike processes ( Keffer 1997).
