Diagnosis. Th is species is recognized most easily by the pattern of ochraceous, black,
and iridescent green pubescence on the pronotum and elytra. Superfi cially it is similar
to L. viridicomus and L. chlorescens, but those species have more extensive green
iridescence. Leptostylopsis milleri also has iridescent green setae between the antennal
tubercles, generally more developed than in L. viridicomus. It is further distinguished
by its uniformly dark tarsi and by the setae atop the elytral tubercles that tend to be
semierect (as in L. viridicomus) and not appressed as in L. annulipes. It further diff ers
from L. annulipes in lacking distinct ochraceous pubescence patches on the pronotum
and elytral base, and diff ers from L. viridicomus in having a subhumeral black macula
which is absent in L. viridicomus.
