BIOLOGY AND PHYLOGENY OF THE CASSIDINAE GYLLENHAL SENSU LATO (TORTOISE AND LEAF-MINING BEETLES) (COLEOPTERA: CHRYSOMELIDAE)
TLDR
The biological account and phylogenetic results provide an opportunity for identifying some general trends and major innovations in the evolutionary history of Cassidinae.
Origins and diversification of subsociality in leaf beetles (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Cassidinae: Chrysomelinae)
TLDR
Using the phylogenies, it is proposed that subsociality originated independently in Cassidinae and Chrysomelinae, and several times within each subfamily, and was preceded by particular behaviours.
Faecal case architecture in the gibbosus species group of Neochlamisus Karren, 1972 (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Cryptocephalinae: Chlamisini)
TLDR
It is shown that Neochlamisus cases proved to be comprised primarily of faeces, with plant trichomes representing the only common secondary component, and general architectural trends reflected variation in shape, faecal texture, and the incorporation and density of trichome.
Beetles (Coleoptera) of Peru: A Survey of the Families. Carabidae
TLDR
The family Carabidae, commonly known as “Ground Beetles,” is one of the ten largest beetle families and is the largest family in the coleopteran suborder Adephaga.
Phytotelmatrichis, a new genus of Acrotrichinae (Coleoptera: Ptiliidae) associated with the phytotelmata of Zingiberales plants in Peru.
TLDR
A new genus of Ptiliidae: Acrotrichinae with two species Phytotelmatrichis peruviensis sp.
First Report of Immatures, Genitalia and Maternal Care in Eugenysa columbiana (Boheman) (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Cassidinae: Eugenysini)
Abstract Illustrated descriptions of larvae, pupae and adult genitalia are provided for Eugenysa columbiana (Boheman) in Costa Rica. These represent the first such descriptions for the tribe
Beetles (Coleoptera) of Peru: A Survey of the Families. Part I. Overview
TLDR
This contribution is the first modern synopsis of beetle families, based on ongoing fieldwork and a literature review, which represents the firstmodern catalogue of the entire beetle fauna of a hyperdiverse Neotropical country.
Three New Reports of Subsocial Tortoise Beetles from South America (Chrysomelidae: Cassidinae)
TLDR
This report increases the dataset of documented subsocial cassidines to 26 species, with 23 in Mesomphaliini and three in Eugenysini, and reports three new records of subsocial Cassidinae.
Beetles (Coleoptera) of Peru: A Survey of the Families. Chrysomelidae: Alticinae (Flea Beetles)
TLDR
The present work treats flea beetles as a subfamily, i.e., Alticinae, and states that the genus Aphthona (in the true sense) does not exist in the Western Hemisphere; therefore, the species listed in the present checklist need to be transferred to other related genera as was pointed out in Furth and Savini (1996).
Range extensions of new world tortoise beetles (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Cassidinae)
TLDR
Host plant data from specimen labels, including several new records, are reported for some species of New World Cassidinae.
