What Astathini species is this?


A new downloadable ebook. Check it out!

I was going over my collection and I was quite astonished to see a pair of Astathini species that is unlike what I have. I’m not sure if this is of genus Astathes since the pronotal structure, especially the central part is different. It is carinated, unlike the conical form or raised quadrate projection that I’m familiar with. The metallic blue fascia, while rather common in other species of the tribe is limited to the upper half of the elytra but never reaching the base.

What species can this be?
