The distinctive structure of the adult male hypopygium, bearing a thickset digitus and a stout elongated superior volsella, is presented. Intraspecific morphological variations are described in order to compareC. crassusandC. nigrovittatus(Goetghebuer, 1922), treated as close relatives. The geographical distribution and ecology of the two species are commented on.
