This genus comprises three species which have very concave sides to the pronotum. The pronotum also has a transverse furrow across its entire width.
C. cocksii is distinguished by the antennae, which have the 3rd and 4th segments thicker than the 1st and 2nd; the second segment is pale except for the base. The wing membrane is short (less than half the length of the corium, and slightly shorter than the abdomen), with long, erect pubescence.
A relatively scarce species among sphagnum and tussocks in bogs across Britain, except for northern Scotland.
