Largely unknown (Fig. 62). Collection Records. BRAZIL: Bahia – 160 km W Barrieras, 11o51’S 46o10’W, 830 m (Jan). Comments. This is one of the two or three rarest species of the genus. We have seen only seven specimens and accept the distinct possibility that the above diagnosis may prove to be too restrictive. Martínez and Pereira (1967) provided a detailed description of the species and commentary on the prevailing confusion attending the name “thalassinus”. According to their analysis, Olsoufieff (1924) concluded that Felsche (1901) misidentified Perty’s species in his redescription of “thalassinus”, which he inadvertently based on a then undescribed species.

Female – Head with transverse trituberculate carina usually bowed anteriorly to some degree. Pronotum (except C. 105-108). Distribution. Neotropical region and Mesoamerican provinces of Venezuela (Fig. 113). Key to species of the jasius group 1. g. Fig. 114, 117), not angulate or explanate. Dorsum at least partially bright metallic green or yellowish green. Pronotum with posteromedian, more-or-less triangular, metallic green depression (Fig. 97) filled with dense, coarse granulation (x15) ..........................................................................................................................................

Chabrillaci] ist nichts als eine schön kupfrigrothe Varietät [of C. saphirinus]”, and we agree with his synonymy. This morph of C. saphirinus occurs widely and in populations dominated by the bluish-violet form; it is not a distinct taxon in our opinion. Fernando Vaz-de-Mello (pers. ) has observed that the red form tends to occur more frequently in populations at somewhat higher elevations than does the blue form, and only in the southern portion of the species range. Thomson’s species was originally spelled “chabrillacii”, and in the literature it commonly appears so written.
