Type material. Holotype: Male, Philippines:
Mindanao Isl., Mt. Apo, 10.2013, local collector
leg. (DUBC)
Paratypes: 2 Males, Philippines: Mindanao
Isl., Mt. Apo, 10.2013, local collector leg.;
Mindanao Isl., Kidapawan, Mt. Apo, 06.2014,
local collector leg. (DUBC)
General distribution: Philippines: Mindanao
Isl. (Fig. 3).
Description. Body red-brown, with light
luster. Surface of body behind middle with
two oval dark-brown spots and white strips of
pubescence. Length: 16.0-17.1 mm, width: 4.9-
5.0 mm.
Head flat, trapezoidal, with slightly convex
eyes. Head between eyes and antennal bases
with longitudinal keel, surface along keel with
coarse punctation and pubescence. Head widest
between eyes. Anterior part of head with brown
pubescence and two elongated symmetric spots
of yellow pubescence. Cheeks and area around
eyes with yellow dense pubescence. Labrum
pubescent, with long and dense, yellow-brownsetae. Clypeus with transversal impression, matt,
with several coarse punctures. Antennomeres
brown; 1st antennomere thickened, with dense
yellow-brown pubescence; 3rd longer than 4th ,
with light pubescence.
Pronotum almost cylindrical, expanded laterally
before middle, dark brown, pubescent, with
acute basal angles, with sparse and coarse
punctation. Dorsal disc of pronotum in basal
and lateral parts with three longitudinal bands of
white pubescence. Scutellum brown, triangular,
apically rounded, shiny and pubescent.
Elytra brown, shiny, without metallic luster,
slightly flattened and impressed before middle,
finely punctate, in basal part with more sparse
and coarse punctures. Basis of each elytron
concaved at shoulders. Each elytron behind
middle with dark brown oval spot and white
wavy lines: one line S–shaped or C - shaped,
beginning from scutellum and almost reaching
middle, with fewer pubescence; second white
line beginning from shoulders and continues
laterally until dark brown spot that encircles
(one paratype with interrupted 2nd line in
middle). Along suture located narrow flat
elevation, more expressed in apical part. Apex
of elytra without sharp projections, straight
closer to suture, evenly apically rounded, with
many long dark hairs..
Bottom side of body covered with dense pale
pubescence and with small sparse brown
spots. Femora brown, darkened on apex, with
dense yellow-brown pubescence. Tibia brown,
slightly darkened in basal part. Tarsomeres
brown, covered by yellow-brown pubescence.
Differential diagnosis. The new species is
similar to C. ornatus (Fig. 4), but differs from
it by the shape of body surface and coloration.
Each elytron of new species behind middle with
dark brown oval spot and white wavy lines;
C. ornatus with three black spots: one of them
more small behind shoulder, second in lateral
part under shoulders and third large spot is
situated behind middle. All spots are more or
less rounded with white lines. White lines onelytra of C. ornatus are not connected with each
other as at new species. Pronotum of C. ornatus
black, new species with dark brown pronotum.
Dorsal disc of pronotum of C. ornatus in basal
part with well-developed longitudinal spot of
white tomentum and with two rudiments of
white longitudinal bands in lateral parts; dorsal
disc of pronotum of new species with three
white longitudional bands.
Etymology. This species is named after my
colleague, the Russian cerambycidologist
Maksim Lazarev (Moscow, Russia) in appreciation
of cooperation.
