Abstract A parsimony analysis was undertaken to test subfamily and tribal group concepts of Cassidinae (ca. 2000 genera, ca. 6000 species). An integrated account of their biology was synthesized from the primary literature. A detailed morphological study of adults, using Hemisphaerota palmarum Boheman as a model, formed the basis for evaluating characters previously utilized and for defining novel characters. The data matrix comprised 210 characters (from adults and immature stages, ecology and… 
A phylogenetic study of the worldwide tribe Cassidini Gyllenhal, 1813 (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Cassidinae) based on morphological data
TLDR
The current internal classification of Cassidini s.l.n. needs a profound revision before taxonomy reflects natural groupings, and the inclusion of evidence from immature stages, bionomics and molecular data should provide a better resolution of the relationships in the tribe.
Beetles (Coleoptera) of Peru: A Survey of the Families. Chrysomelidae: Cassidinae Gyllenhal sensu lato
TLDR
Cassidine larvae are poorly documented, requiring close examination of leaves for blotch and linear mines, and it is most efficient to collect cassidines by targeted beating with sheet on such plants.
Phylogeny and revision of the New World seed-feeding bruchine genus Gibbobruchus Pic (Coleoptera : Chrysomelidae)
TLDR
The monophyly of Gibbobruchus and its species groups were tested based on 26 adult morphological characters and 15 taxa and two new synonyms are proposed including two new species, G. vinicius, sp.
The structure of the spermathecae of selected genera of Stolaini and Eugenysini (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Cassidinae) and its taxonomic significance
TLDR
Spermathecae of 43 nominal and one unidentified species of Cassidinae belonging to the tribes Eugenysini and Stolaini have been studied and figured and no correlation was observed between the degree of sexual dimorphism within the species and the complexity of spermat hecal structure.
Natural history of Platypria (Platypria) hystrix (Fabricius, 1798) on Fabaceae host plants, with notes on other Platypria species in India (Chrysomelidae, Cassidinae, Hispini)
TLDR
Novel natural history data is presented, based on a field study of populations of PlatypriA (Platypria) hystrix on Erythrina stricta Roxb.
A comparison of hispine beetles (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) associated with three orders of monocot host plants in lowland Panama
TLDR
Cluster analysis reveals that while many Hispinae species tend to group with plant species in only one of the three monocot orders, 9 of 16 Hispinee species on Zingiberales hosts were recorded in substantial numbers on both the Heliconiaceae and the Marantaceae, indicating an underlying pattern of feeding flexibility at the host plant family level.
Natural History Notes on Chelymorpha cribraria (Fabricius, 1775) in Brazil (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Cassidinae: Mesomphaliini)
TLDR
Certain features that inform the phylogenetic characters from juvenile stages proposed in Chaboo (2007) are reported on.
Natural History Notes on Stolas conspersa (Germar, 1823) from Brazil (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Cassidinae: Mesomphaliini)
The Neotropical tortoise beetle genus Stolas Billberg, 1820 comprises 187 recognized species (Borowiec and Świętojańska 2002–2018). The genus has not been revised and the natural history and life

TLDR
The phylogeny of the Chrysomeloidea is re-assessed, with data from recently described larvae of three chrysomeloid taxa, indicating an origin before the late Cretaceous break-up of Gondwana.

Revision and Phylogenetic Analysis of Acromis Chevrolat (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Cassidinae: Stolaini)
TLDR
A cladistic analysis of species based on 19 morphological characters provides strong support for resolution within Acromis and biological implications are discussed in light of the cladogram.
Biology and Host Range of Gratiana spadicea (Klug, 1829) (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Cassidinae), a Potential Biological Control Agent for the Weed Solanum sisymbriifolium Lamarck (Solanaceae) in South Africa
TLDR
The poor larval survival on nonhosts and the inability of the agent to recognize non hosts as oviposition sites supported a request for release of this agent, which was subsequently granted.

TLDR
Biogeographical analysis of biotic zones, using items of error as the optimality criterion, relative to the phylogenetic hypothesis for Neota/us + Abaris, suggests South American diversification and restriction until at least the Pliocene.
