Calosoma frigidum

University of Alberta E.H. Strickland Entomological Museum

SeasonalityAdults have been collected in May and June. IdentificationThis species, in the subgenus Calosoma, is characterized by the small, short prothorax which, compared with the elytra, is pronouncedly narrow. Black, often with faint bronze lustre, sides of prothorax and elytral foveae and side margins usually metallic (green, golden or purple); ventral side with green or purple reflection; legs black. Length 17 to 27 mm.

Calosoma lepidum

University of Alberta E.H. Strickland Entomological Museum

SeasonalityAdults have been collected in April to June. IdentificationThis species, in the subgenus Chrysostigma, is similar to calidum, but differs on the following: The entire body is shorter, with broader elytra, which are almost constantly more or less rufinistic. Prothorax narrower, more constricted towards the base, basal foveae smaller, side margin more narrowly and less distinctly reflexed. Elytral foveae usually more numerous, smaller, not or very little broader than their interval, adjoining striae not disturbed; transverse lines of the intervals less deep and regular, particularly near the suture; all striae as a rule deeper. Length 17 to 23 mm.

Calosoma calidum

University of Alberta E.H. Strickland Entomological Museum

SeasonalityAdults have been collected in June and July. IdentificationThis species, in the subgenus Chrysostigma, is black, or dark piceous, sometimes with faint bronzy lustre, elytral foveae brilliantly golden coppery or green. Prothorax broad, with evenly curved, widely reflexed sides, and strongly rounded hind angles. Elytra with margin serrate behind the shoulder, striae deep, intervals with strongly engraved transverse lines, dorsal foveae large, rounded, somewhat varying in size, but at least in part broader than the corresponding interval. Length 19 to 25 mm.

Calosoma luxatum

University of Alberta E.H. Strickland Entomological Museum

SeasonalityMost adults have been collected in May and June, with fewer in April and July. IdentificationThis species, in the subgenus Callisthenes, has completely reduced hind wings and quadrate metepisternum. Deep black, seldom with bluish lustre on sides. Prothorax rather flat, strongly narrowed basally, with backwards protruding, little rounded hind angles. Elytral sculpture with transverse lines at least as strong as the striae, together producing a system of more or less convex, slightly rounded tegulae which are arranged in more or less regular rows and becoming smaller, granulate towards the apex. Length 13 to 21.5 mm.

Calosoma moniliatum

University of Alberta E.H. Strickland Entomological Museum

SeasonalityAdults have been collected in May to July. IdentificationThis species, in the subgenus Callisthenes, has completely reduced hind wings and quadrate metepisternum. Black, upper surface, especially the elytra, usually with bronze or greenish lustre, the elytral foveae more evidently so, whereas the interlying tubercles are black. Elytron with three catenate intervals. Elytral tubercles more regular, smoother, contrasting against the dull black blackground. Length 14 to 19 mm.
