Species M. Adolphinae
The Lomapterina are an Indo-Australian group of flower beetles in which the basomedian lobe of the pronotum is expanded to entirely or almost entirely cover the scutellum.
Many are a bright metallic green in coloration though members of Lomaptera subgenus Melanoptera are brown or blackish (Golding 2009).
Most Cetoniinae in Australia belong to the tribe Schizorhinini, which is endemic to the Australasian region.
Flower Chafers or Flower Beetles, belong to a subfamily of Scarabaeidae known as Cetoniinae. The subfamily consists of 510 genera and 3600 species worldwide of which 30 genera and 134 species occur in Australia .
The species of Schizorhinini are identifiable from illustrated works (Allard 1995) but the identification of genera in this tribe is difficult.
