Not illustrated. 1880 edition. Excerpt: ...the prothorax are dull, pale green; the reflexed margins of the elytra are beautiful green sometimes blue, or inclined to blue posteriorly; the prosternal process has a few strong punctures, sometimes with a slight medial impression; the apical segment of the abdomen is entirely smooth, blue-green.

The dorsal striae of the elytra are very strong, and the first two or three interstices convex; each elytron has the following impressions: --one at the extreme base; one on the margin below the shoulder; one a little behind the middle; and two between this and the apex; these last two rather more approximate than the others, but not running together, as is nearly the case in P. solea; there are also four or five small impressions on the 3rd interstice, and some very small dots on the sutural one; the apex is somewhat compressed, frosted, and pubescent, as in solea.
