The elytra bear a complex pattern of fine
markings. The typical form is that of many white spots ringed in
black, although vertical banding is seen in some specimens. The white
areas are rather pearlescent. Markings vary, and there are a number
of recognized varieties.
A rather localized species. Basilewsky
writes that it lives in savanna regions rather than rain forests, although
it is only found in shady areas where trees are present.
Countries of origin:
The Congos and Tanzania.
