Chlorochroa uhleri

University of Alberta E.H. Strickland Entomological Museum

SeasonalityAdults have been collected from March to August. IdentificationThe dorsum of this species is generally pale green. C. uhleri has reflexed anterolateral margins of the pronotum. The pronotum, corium and scutellum exhibit numerous pale callosities, scutellum withwith three distinct calosites at base and a pale apex. Costal margin pale. Rostrum just surpassing hind coxae. C. uhleri is extremely similar in appearance to C. sayi and they have nearly identical male genitalia, historically the two have often been confused. However, C. uhleri has a membrane without purple flecks, the embolium is apically wider and the calosites on the scutellum are smaller. Furthermore, Buxton et al. 1983 showed that there are no records for C. sayi north of 46°N. Length 12-16 mm.
