TitleFive new species of the genus Helota from Sikkim and Darjeeling
JournalNotes from the Leyden Museum
AbstractThis handsome species is closely allied to Helota curvipes Oberth. ¹) from the Himalaya, but at once distinguished by its more robust shape, by the coppery colour of the upper surface, by the broad fulvous streaks on the sides of the pronotum, and by the broadly subtruncate apices of the elytra in the male sex.
Length 10 mm. — Shining; above coppery with shades of green; the scutellum brassy, the extreme lateral margins of the elytra bronze green; the antennae pale testaceous, the terminal joint of the club infuscate; the sides of the pronotum broadly margined with fulvous, which colour is not sharply separated from the dark metallic colour of the disk; the elytra provided with two pairs of yellow convex spots, the anterior pair placed between the 4th and 6th ²), the posterior pair between the 3rd and 6th striae; these spots are surrounded with the green shade, especially the posterior pair. The colour of the underside is testaceous, with the exception of the head and the elytral epipleurae which are brassy; the legs are testaceous, with the apex of the femora and the entire tibiae brassy, the tarsi more or less dark brown-red.
