HOLOTYPE: Male: AUSTRALIA: Western Australia: 13.2 km N of jct of Agana Kalbarri Rd and Brand Hiway , Galena River Bridge , 27.82917 ° S 114.6873 ° E, 190 m, 24 GoogleMaps

DIAGNOSIS: Recognized by the following combination of characters: proepisternum unilobed; metanotum not prominently flared; posterior margin of pygophore biconvex, with prominent fold on left side forming deep U-shaped groove, without small apophysis on right margin of groove. C. chenopoderis , monotocopsis , pilbarensis , and variegatus are all very similar and often difficult to tell apart. Of the four species, chenopoderis exhibits the most phenotypic variation in both size and coloration (e.g., fig. 2B–C) and has the widest variety of known host plants of all Coridromius . It has a somewhat narrower body shape and is typically smaller than the others, though size ranges do overlap. Males can be distinguished from the other species by the relatively shorter left paramere, the much deeper U-shaped fold on the posterior margin of the pygophore, by the lack of a small apical process on the right margin of this fold (found only in pilbarensis ) and by the lack of a small rounded lobe on the posterior margin of the metepimeron (as in fig. 14B) as found in variegatus .

DESCRIPTION: COLORATION (figs. 2B– C, 4, 6): Extremely variable, ranging from light tan or olive to brown or black with brown markings (fig. 2B–C). Head: Mostly brownish yellow to orange-brown with dark brown vittae on frons; lateral margins bordering eyes and posterior margin of vertex yellow; paired tubercles on vertex yellow, bordered posteriorly with dark brown markings, sometimes merging with dark brown spot in middle of vertex; clypeus with irregular median and lateral dark brown markings; mandibular and maxillary plates darkened along ventral margins; buccula pale; labrum light brown; labium yellow, brown apically; in some specimens head mostly dark brown. Antenna: AI yellowbrown to orange-brown with thin brown apical and basal annulations; AII yellowbrown to orange-brown, sometimes slightly brown apically; AIII and AIV orange-brown to brown. Thorax: Pronotal collar yellow with brown anterior and posterior margins, uniformly dark brown in darker specimens; pronotum light tan, olive, brown, or dark brown, often with pale medial stripe, usually with irregular dark brown or black markings on callar region; mesoscutum orange-brown to dark brown; scutellum ranging from mostly dark brown with yellow corners to mostly light brown or tan with darker brown markings; thoracic pleura light brown to dark brown, often with yellow markings; mesopleuron brown to black ventrally. Hemelytra: Light tan or olive to brown or black, sometimes with a brown chevron on corium, sometimes darker along claval commissure; membrane faint brown with darker veins. Legs: Coxae yellow to brown; pro- and mesofemora yellow to dark brown, sometimes with faint, subapical brown markings; hind femur yellow to orange-brown with 8 or 9 dark brown diagonal stripes on outer surface; tibiae yellow to brown; tarsi brown apically. Abdomen: Yellow to dark brown or black, sometimes with lateral brown markings around spiracles, males sometimes with reddish markings on genital capsule. SUR- FACE AND VESTITURE (figs. 4, 6): Head glossy and shallowly punctate; pronotum shallowly punctate; propleuron, metepimeron, scutellum, and hemelytra impunctate; head and dorsum with sparse distribution of short, simple, white, decumbent setae. STRUCTURE (figs. 4, 6): Head: Wide; frons broadly tumescent medially; paired tubercles adjacent to eyes; transverse depressions above tubercles shallow; posterior margin of head slightly rounded medially but otherwise flat. Thorax: Pronotum broad and weakly rounded, margins thinly carinate, anterolateral margins weakly upturned, posterior margin weakly medially cleft, submarginal region of humeral angles weakly excavated; proepisternum unilobed; posterior margin of metepimeron truncate; metanotum not prominent and flared. Hemelytra: Embolium thin and evenly rounded, nearly straight. Legs: Metatibial spines thick. Abdomen: When viewed laterally, posterior margin of abdominal sternite II not distinctly angular. MALE GENITALIA (figs. 7K–M, 8H): Right paramere triangular and elongate (figs. 7L–M); left paramere sickle-shaped, apex acute (figs. 7K, 8H); posterior margin of pygophore biconvex, with distinct fold on left forming a deep U-shaped groove (fig. 8H). FEMALE PARAGENITALIA: No visible external paragenitalia.

ETYMOLOGY: This name was chosen to reflect this species’ preference for chenopodiaceous plants.

HOSTS: This species is known from several plant families but is most commonly collect- ed on chenopods ( Chenopodiaceae ).

DISTRIBUTION: The most widely distribut- ed of the Australian species, chenopoderis is found throughout the country. It has also been collected in New Zealand and Norfolk Island, where it has probably been introduced (map 4). This species has also recently been discovered in North America by Michael D. Schwartz; it has been collected off chenopods in Mexico, Arizona, New Mexico, southern California, Florida, and Texas. Additionally, specimens of Coridromius have been collected from Hawaii and previously identified as variegatus . Examination of these specimens, collected from Chenopodium murale , confirms that they are in fact chenopoderis .
