Development of Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) Markers for Analysis of Population Structure and Invasion Pathway in the Coconut Leaf Beetle Brontispa longissima (Gestro) Using Restriction Site-Associated DNA (RAD) Genotyping in Southern China
The results provide strong evidence for the utility of RAD sequencing (RAD-seq) in population genetics studies, and the generated SNP resource could provide a valuable tool for population genomics studies of B. longissima in the future.
Wallacea, Pistosia and Neodownesia: three distinct genera and their tribal placement (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Cassidinae)
Three species of Wallacea are transferred from Gonophorini to Bothryonopini based on absence of setigerous pores on the pronotum, mouthparts situated close to antennal insertions, scutellum on the same plane as the elytra, and morphology of the larva.

Two Cryptic Species in Brontispa longissima (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae): Evidence from Mitochondrial DNA Analysis and Crosses between the Two Nominal Species
Insects in the Pacific group had a shorter developmental time from hatching to adult emergence, produced fewer eggs, and had a larger adult body size than insects in the Asian group, suggesting that B. longissima represents two cryptic species.
Revision of the Lema (Lema) concinnipennis Baly, 1865 species group (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Criocerinae) in Japan
Three species of the Lema (Lema) concinnipennis Baly, 1865 species group are found in Japan and their classification is revised and a key to three species, diagnosis, and redescriptions for the three species are provided.
