Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. 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. Legs green. Length 10--llj lines. Hub.--Madagascar (Crossley); Fianarantsoa (Cowan). The remarks in brackets refer to the specimens from Fianarantsoa. Coccinellopsis bistrigata, n. sp.

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.
