Pseudanilara sp. Blue-green pilose  Distinctive features

Notable for its prominent patent hairs, mostly dark coloured and resembling those of P. pilosa, but it differs from that species in its widespread blue-green colouration on a dark background, its broader head and pronotum, and a flatter body shape.
