Description
Diagnosis. Th is species is easily recognized by the mostly uniform, ochraceous pubescence
on the pronotum and basal 1/5 of the elytra, the small, postmedial black macula
near the elytral suture, the transversely truncate elytral apices, and the pronotum with
very weak, rounded lateral tubercles. Other unique features of this species are the antennal
scape that lacks a distinct apical, dark annula, and upper eye lobes which are
very close together. Leptostylopsis annulipes is similar in having distinct castaneous pubescence on the
pronotum and elytral base, but this pubescence is less extensive than in L. humerofulvus.
Furthermore, L. annulipes has a darker scutellum with dark patches on either
side whereas in L. humerofulvus the scutellum is more similarly colored to the adjacent
elytra. Also, L. humerofulvus usually lacks a dark subhumeral basal black spot which is
present in L. annulipes and L. milleri.
