Diphucrania prasina  Distinctive features

Males are metallic green all over, the females are larger and brown with white markings on the elytra Barker 1999b.


Barker 1999b reported a series of males and females collected [in 1943] from Milmerran in the SE of Qld. It is only known in SA by a single old male specimen at the SA Museum labelled 'S. Australia', and its occurrence in this State can be regarded as questionable.
