Description. A description of the adult ( Fig. 2 View Figs ) is available in Marcuzzi (1999). We add the following characters for a better definition of the species: Gena impunctate, genal groove short ( Fig. 8 View Figs ); prosternal process with a raised, smooth lateral margin between coxae to posterior apex, median disc depressed and separated by a shallow, fine groove, bearing fine, golden setae ( Fig. 8 View Figs ). Metaventrite and first abdominal ventrite without post-coxal, pit-like crenulations.

Distribution. Martinique.

Remarks. The two male specimens from the NMNH labeled “ Guadeloupe ” represent specimens intercepted by USDA port inspectors at San Juan, Puerto Rico. These specimens were misidentified by T. J. Spilman as C. lherminierii   , in contrast to a female of the true C. lherminierii   from Guadeloupe that he determined as C. picea   . Unfortunately, the records for the port identification numbers are lost (S. Lingafelter and P. A. Touhey, in litt.). The locality on the labels indicates the last port visited by the inspected vessel. These specimens are clearly C. martiniquense   and must have been picked up in Martinique on the way to San Juan via Guadeloupe. No Guadeloupe record is justified by these specimens.
