SeasonalityAdults of this species have been collected in June to September. IdentificationMember of the inaequale group (subgenus Bracteon). Best recognized on the well-develpoed carina at hind angles of prothorax which runs parallel with side margin and reaches the base. Coppery or greenish, rarely bluish, mirrors of 3rd interval as a rule contrasting, in green specimens often coppery, and with adjoining intervals sometimes diffusely darkened. First antennal segment red, at least underneath; legs varying but femora always reddish at base (as a rule entirely), tibiae red to piceous, except at apex. Elytra with barely preceptible transverse impression at base and 4th stria straight, basal margin inside shoulder reaching 5th stria; 3rd interval hardly twice as broad as 4th on the level of anterior silver spot. Length 4.6 to 6.3 mm.
