Body measurements were made to the nearest 0.1 mm using an ocular micrometer with a Zeiss Stemi DV4 stereoscope, Jena, Germany. Photographs were taken by: Susana Guzmán-Gómez (Instituto de Biología, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, IBUNAM, Mexico City, Mexico) using a Zeiss AXIO Zoom V16 microscope, a Zeiss AxioCam MRc5 camera, and the Zeiss efficient navigation multifocal technology program (Zeiss, Jena, Germany); BJCG using a multifocus digital microscope Leica Z16 APOA; Alfonso Aceves (INECOL) using a Canon T 2i camera, extension tubes, a 100 mm macro, and an external Canon flash; and photographs of material from the CMNC   were taken by AAJ using a Leica Z16 system and LAS software for image stacking. The distribution maps were made using QGIS desktop 2.14.19.

Diagnosis. Dorsally shining ( Figs 1 View Fig a–b); antennal club yellowish ( Figs 1 View Fig a–b); mandibles lacking a very pronounced rounded lobe ( Figs 1 View Fig a–b); legs black; male protibiae short and straight with apical teeth flattened ( Fig. 3a View Fig ); male profemora without a transverse ridge at its base and not having profemora ventrally excavated near coxae; pronotum, scutellum and elytral intervals shining, green, golden or blue with coppery reflections ( Fig. 1a View Fig ); posterior pronotal margin distinct in front of scutellum ( Fig. 1a View Fig ); elytral intervals convex ( Fig. 1a View Fig ); male procoxa forming a slender saddle-like structure at point of junction with trochanter; male mesoventrite with a distinct, projected keel in front of mesocoxae; aedeagus like Figs 1 View Fig c–f.

Description of holotype. Male ( Figs 1a View Fig , 3a View Fig ), length 18.4 mm, greatest width 9.4 mm. Color dorsally golden-green with strong reddish-coppery pronotal reflections. Antennal club reddish-brown, unmodified; external face of terminal antennomere with a faint U-shaped furrow. Clypeus abruptly arcuate anteriorly; disc rugose and with small, conical tubercle posteriorly. Edge of ocular canthus obtusely angulate anteriorly. Pronotum with small, non-punctate depression by midline just behind anterior margin; posterior margin vaguely indicated in front of scutellum, otherwise absent; disc coarsely punctate anteriorly and laterally. Scutellum impunctate, midline impressed, sides arcuate on anterior third. Elytra distinctly striate, first stria terminated by scutellum, extending basally no more than one-third length of scutellum; striae shallowly, finely punctate, crenate. Protibia with apical tooth bent inwardly ( Fig. 3a View Fig ), apex shallowly emarginate; additional five teeth on outer margin unmodified; flattened ventral or inner surface with two distinct conical teeth, apical tooth slightly smaller; a third-minute tooth often evident on basal side of larger proximal tooth; mesotibia with three complete, transverse carinae on outer surface; metatibia with four complete, transverse carinae on outer surface; metafemur with tooth near trochanter lacking. Mesoventrite with small, distinct keel in front of mesocoxae. Aedeagus as in Figs 1 View Fig c–f.

Description of allotype. Female ( Fig. 1b View Fig ), length 19.1 mm, greatest width 9.7 mm. Similar to male except in the following respects: protibia with seven unmodified teeth on outer edge, apical tooth simple ( Fig. 1b View Fig ); ventral surface of protibia lacking two large conical teeth; apical spur longer, thicker and bent inward ( Fig. 1b View Fig ); scutellum border strigose; coxa not forming a ridge at juncture with trochanter.

Variation. Body length 11.6–19.2 mm. Maximum width 6.9–10.1 mm. Coloration ranges from bright metallic light green to a bright metallic light blue, to a bright metallic green-gold to gold with reddish-coppery reflections. Middle of thorax can go from almost a smooth surface to a faint middle-line, to a faint middle-line with punctures. Differential diagnosis. For the differential diagnosis, see the key below.

Etymology. From the Latin word nuntiatus   (part. masc. nom. sing.), meaning the announced one. The name derives from the fact that a species distribution model for the Last Glacial Maximum in Oaxaca predicted this species existence (A*©*©ΙΑǤΑ-JΙΜḖΝΕΖ et al. 2020).

Collection circumstances. The species has been collected in traps baited with human dung and mushrooms (Agaricales and Boletales), as well as directly under sheep, cow, and dog dung. The collections were made from June to September in the “Cerro del Águila” ( Fig. 5 View Fig ) in the Sierra de Tlaxiaco and communities around it in the Mixteca shield of Oaxaca, Mexico. It is part of the Sierra Madre del Sur, with a mountain range from 2.200 to 3.250 m a.s.l. This area is characterized by pine, oak and pine-oak forests, with some areas with shrublands near the communities. This mountain has a sub-humid climate with heavy rains in the summer, with mean annual temperatures ranging from 10° to 16°C and medium precipitations oscillating from 800 to 1.500 mm per year (IΝΕǤΙ 2008).

Taxonomic notes. The new species, G. nuntiatus   sp. nov., is veritably halfway between G. pecki   and G. viridiobscurus   . The aedeagus ( Figs 1 View Fig c–f) is more similar to G. pecki   ( Figs 8 View Fig c–f) than to G. viridiobscurus   ( Figs 9 View Fig c–f). However, the beetle’s external appearance ( Figs 1 View Fig a–b) is indistinguishable from G. viridiobscurus   ( Figs 9 View Fig a–b), except for the coloration, where the specimens of G. nuntiatus   sp. nov. are very bright, ranging from green, to blue or golden-black with a reddish-coppery tint versus the specimens of G. viridiobscurus   being a dull bluish or greenish-black.

Color as a character has been much maligned in taxonomy. However, HΙΓΓ (2017) has now proposed that the mitonuclear species compatibility concept is the best current method for diagnosing species. This mitonuclear compatibility leads, among other things, to the evolution of species-typical coloration as part of speciation reinforcement processes. Thus, species-typical coloration evolves as a signal of coadapted mitochondrial-genotype genes. HΙΓΓ (2017) presents as a case study the nearly perfect agreement between bird species boundaries according to mtDNA types and those drawn according to species-typical songs or coloration. Therefore, coloration might be a valid taxonomic character, which should be used judiciously and concomitantly with other concordant characters.
