Description
Diagnosis. This species is variable with regard to the presence or absence of dark maculae
at the elytral base and or humerus. It is similar to C. hispaniolae in size and proportions, but the apical black elytral macula is matte and lacks the metallic purple iridescence that
is present in C. hispaniolae. This region is also very pubescent and punctate while in C.
hispaniolae, large areas are devoid of pubescence and punctation. It is somewhat similar
to C. rawlinsi, but differs in having punctures in the apical dark portion of the elytron
and in having the femora fulvous (dark reddish-brown to black in C. rawlinsi).
Notes. This species, previously known only from Cuba, is here recorded for Hispaniola,
a new island record. Haiti and the Dominican Republic represent new country records.
