SeasonalityAdults are active from late June through August.
IdentificationThis species is perhaps the easiest to identify of any in the genus. The fine yellow specks irregularly scattered over the elytra are not found on any other species. The yellow flecks may be widely separated to almost confluent. The head and pronotum are usually a solid metallic green. the background colour of the elytra is brilliant green through coppery brown and occasionally purplely blue. The beetles range in length from 12 to 20 mm, with males about 14.2 mm and females about 17 mm.
