General Description

This dull black beetle in at first glance, is similar to M. accuminata. These beetles may be distinguished by their nearly straight pronotal base and lack of metathoracic sensory pits. Separating the Anthaxia species is subtle, as the pronotal pits may be somewhat shallow on some specimens and could easily be confused with A. aeneogaster.
