Comment: Graphocephala can be a very difficult genus in which to differentiate some of the species from one another. Some individuals of G. fennahi can be challenging to distinguish from G. teliformis, and some teliformis can be very difficult to distinguish from G. coccinea, in particular subspecies G. coccinea quadrivittata. Exact measurements of body length and determination of sex (or photos that allow a sex to be determined) are ESSENTIAL in being 100% certain which species you have, although even then it may not be possible to conclusively determine a species due to overlapping size ranges.

This page serves as an umbrella for records of Graphocephala that cannot be identified past genus level [as of now].
