General DescriptionThis is another difficult species to distinguish. The beetles look very similar to C. trinervia. Differences in the structure of the male's fore tibia help to identify the species (see key). On the few specimens examined, beetles of scabripennis appear more coppery in colour on the elytra, the callosity on the frons is larger and joins the longitudinal ridge coming down from between the eyes. Beetles of trinervia have a more greenish cast on the elytra, and the callosity on the frons is more disrupted by the coarse punctures and does not touch the longitudinal ridge.
