I am in trouble with this Sternotomis. A relatively small (17 mm) and stout beetle.
With such spotty appearance and pronotal bands disrupted in the middle I can suggest Sternotomis flavomaculata, maybe Sternotomis flavomaculata virens.
Has anybody other idea?

You are right, Jérôme. The size of the beetle, the arrangement of the spots in elytra, the pattern in pronotum (two spots in the center and a missing basal spot) confirms that. Our friend Breuning (1935) also agrees with us.
Thank you very much.

So I'm thinking more like S mimica close to the viridissima form. Look at your side?
It is not in my eyes S flavomaculata because it is a very large species and the arrangement of the spots is not the same.
Tell me what you think about it?
