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 Eugenysini. Females are reported as exhibiting guarding of larvae and pupae. Male presence with the female and larval group is also described. The distribution range is extended to Peru, and host plant data is recorded. A new character from the spermatheca is presented and its potential usefulness in… 

The Structure of the Spermathecae of the Genus Stolas (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Cassidinae: Mesomphaliini) and Its Taxonomic Significance

TLDR
Correlation was observed between some species groups created on the basis of external characters and structure of their Spermathecae.

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.

Annotated Checklist of Tortoise Beetles of Trinidad and Tobago (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Cassidinae)

TLDR
Cassidine chrysomelid species are listed for the Caribbean islands of Trinidad and Tobago, based on personal field collections, examination of museum collections and literature records, including four new generic and species records.

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.

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.

TLDR
A general review of the family Chrysomelidae in Mexico is presented, finding that Veracruz, Oaxaca and Guerrero have registered the highest number of species.

Comparative Ultrastructural Analysis of Six Subgenera of Cassida Linnaeus, 1758 (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Cassidinae) Based on Spermatheca of the Type Species and Its Taxonomic Significance

TLDR
The spermathecal structure of the species examined in this study was found to be distinctive not only at the subgenus level but also at the species level.

Maternal Care in the Parasitoid Sclerodermus harmandi (Hymenoptera: Bethylidae)

TLDR
Results indicate that S. harmandi females display maternal care and that this behavior improves the survival of offspring.

Maternal care in Labidomera suturella Chevrolat (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Chrysomelinae) from Costa Rica

TLDR
The first record of subsociality is reported in Labidomera suturella Chevrolat, a member of the subfamily Chrysomelinae, and it is reported that both parents provide postovipositional parental care.

NOTES ON MATERNAL CARE IN THE OVOVIVIPAROUS LEAF BEETLE GONIOCTENA JAPONICA (COLEOPTERA: CHRYSOMELIDAE)

TLDR
For chrysomelid beetles, with the exception of members belonging to the subfamily Cassidinae, such behaviour has been known previously in a few species (Windsor and Choe 1994).

Function of the spermathecal muscle in Chelymorpha alternans Boheman (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Cassidinae)

TLDR
Cutting the spermathecal muscle of a virgin female Chelymorpha alternans Boheman reduced egg fertility and was associated with higher proportions of infertile eggs.

Larval, Pupal, and Adult Stages of North American Physonota (Chrysomelidae)

The tortoise beetle genus Physonota Boheman in North and South America contains about forty species of which four or five are known to occur north of Mexico. Two of these are from the Southwest, one

Origins of parental care in chrysomelid beetles

An insect is considered’ subsocial’ if one or both parents extend care to offspring beyond the egg stage (Michener, 1969; Wilson, 1971, p. 4). Advanced parental care or subsociality has evolved

Reproductive and subsocial behaviour in the ovoviviparous leaf beetle Gonioctena sibirica (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae)

TLDR
It is demonstrated that the main mortality factor of offspring is pedestrian arthropod predators and females physically repel the predators, and potentially alternative reproductive strategies seem to be inhibited in G.sibirica by larval dependence on growing young leaves which are temporally limited and by ovoviviparity which may have limited brood size.

Biology of Neotropical Cassidinae

TLDR
The Neotropical Cassidinae form a group of more or less 2000 species living on plants of the families Bignoniaceae, Compositae, Convolvulaceae, Solanaceae and others, which developed special characters which assure their survival and made them different from the other insects.

Localization of spermatozoa inside viviparous and oviparous females of Chrysomelinae

TLDR
The females of Chrysomelinae are proposed to be called ‘viviparous’ the females whose embryos accomplish at least a part of their development inside their mother’s body.

Cycloalexy among chrysomelid larvae

TLDR
Cycloalexy is defined as the resting position adopted by some insect larvae, both diurnally and nocturnally, used to repel predators or parasitoids.

Two forms of egg defence in a chrysomelid beetle: egg clumping and excrement cover

TLDR
By placing eggs in masses, females may ensure that at least the upper eggs in any egg mass are effectively protected against virtually all natural enemies likely to pose a threat.
