The genus Altica Geoffroy, 1762, is revised for Australia, the west Pacific region and the Indomalayan Archipelago, with 6 valid species: A. aenea (Olivier, 1808); A. birmanensis (Jacoby, 1896); A. caerulea (Olivier, 1791); A. corrusca (Erichson, 1842); A. cyanea Weber, 1801; A. gravida (Blackburn, 1896). The following new synonymy is recognised, in original combinations, senior synonym first: Galeruca aenea Olivier = Haltica ignea Blackburn, 1889, syn. nov., = Haltica bicolora Jacoby, 1904…

ON ORIENTAL GALERUCINAE LATREILLE , 1802 WITH DESCRIPTION OF A NEW SPECIES OF THE GENUS PALPOXENA BALY , 1861 ( COLEOPTERA : CHRYSOMELIDAE )
TLDR
New faunistic information and taxonomic notes regarding several Galerucinae species from the Oriental Region, namely Altica aenea, Chaloenus apicicornis, and Mimastra jelineki Bezděk are contained.
Acacia crassicarpa A. Cunn. ex Benth. (Fabaceae) as a Host Plant of Five Species in the Genera Altica Geoffroy, Aulacophora Dejean, and Aulonogria Borchmann (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae, Tenebrionidae) in Sumatra, Indonesia
TLDR
This chapter discusses beetles of the genus Aulacophora, which is well represented in the Nearctic, Neotropical, and Palearctic regions, but also occurs in the Afrotropical, Australasian, and Indomalayan regions.
Diversification of mitogenomes in three sympatric Altica flea beetles (Insecta, Chrysomelidae)
TLDR
The whole mitogenome is useful to get improved estimates of intra‐ and interspecific variation, not affected by the stochastic error seen in individual genes.
The draft genome of the specialist flea beetle Altica viridicyanea (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae)
TLDR
The genome assembled in this work provides an important resource for further studies on host plant adaptation and functionally affiliated genes and opens the way for comparative genomics studies among closely related Altica species, which may provide insight into the molecular evolutionary processes that occur during ecological speciation.
Captain King’s lost weevil – alive and well in the Northern Territory?
The discovery of a ‘hairy’ yellow weevil in Kakadu National Park in 1995, akin to a widely distributed pest species of agricultural crops in South-East Asia (but not Australia), the so-called
AN ANNOTATED CHECKLIST OF LEAF BEETLES (COLEOPTERA: CHRYSOMELIDAE) OF KOREA, WITH COMMENTS AND NEW RECORDS
TLDR
This paper is the first attempt to divide the distributional records of all Korean Chrysomelidae into records for North and South Korea.
Investigating leaf beetles (Coleoptera, Chrysomelidae) on the west coast islands of Sabah via checklist-taking and DNA barcoding
TLDR
This study provides the first documentation of leaf beetle fauna from island habitats of Sabah and the first DNA barcoding data for leaf beetles from this part of the world, with the next steps being larger scale sampling over a wider geographical scale for a better understanding of tropical arthropod diversity.

Chemically mediated sexual signals restrict hybrid speciation in a flea beetle
TLDR
This work presents a probabilistic analysis of the response of the immune system to the presence of Representative Tournaisian LaSalle virus, which is a type of “spatially aggregating virus” and has a wide range of immune defences.
