Type-species

Canthon smaragdulus ( Fabricius, 1781)  , by original designation.

Diagnosis

Among Scarabaeinae Latreille, 1802  , the tribe Deltochilini  is characterized by having wing venation Radio Posterior 1 (RP1) with small basal appendix; venation Radio Anterior 4 (RA4) significantly thinner than RP1, and RA4 fused basally with RP1 ( Tarasov & Dimitrov 2016). Within the tribe, the subgenus Goniocanthon  is differentiated by the following combination of characters: two clypeal teeth; pronotal and elytral discs smooth, shiny and lacking lateral tubercles or carinae; hypomeron lacking transverse keel; metasternal anterior lobe convex or flat; pygidium convex; dorso-ventral surfaces of the body bearing metallic sheen; and ventral surface of metafemur not marginate anteriorly ( Halffter & Martínez 1977; Vaz-de-Mello et al. 2011).
