In this second part of the revision of Afrotropical Afrocrania Hincks, 1949 (= Pseudocrania Weise, 1892, not Pseudo- crania MCoy, 1851), a group of Galerucinae restricted to Africa, additional material is revised. Herein, species in which the males lack deep head cavities, partly horned antennomeres, or extended elytral extrusions, but usually have small post-scutellar extrusions or depressions, are considered. Material of Afrocrania pauli (Weise, 1903), comb. n. (= Candezea pauli Weise, 1903… 
Revision of the Afrotropical Pimentelia Laboissière, 1939 (Coleoptera, Chrysomelidae, Galerucinae).
TLDR
Pimentelia is described in detail, redescriptions are provided for the two known species, including figures of external and genitalic characters, and distribution maps, and a key is provided to facilitate species identification.
Revision of Candezea Chapuis, 1879 (Coleoptera, Chrysomelidae, Galerucinae) from continental Africa
TLDR
A detailed taxonomic revision of the Afrotropical species, including comprehensive studies on genital morphology, reveals that most species are not congeneric to the genotype and need to be transferred to other genera.
Diversity and trophic ecology of the Monoleptites group (Chrysomelidae: Galerucinae, Luperini) in the Núi Chúa National Park (S Vietnam) with description of new species of Monolepta Chevrolat and Paleosepharia Laboissière
TLDR
A molecular analysis of putative diets based on the identification of chloroplastic psbA-trnH sequences obtained from total DNA extractions of the beetles, provides with some robust hypotheses for the diet of these animals, showing that they are polyphagous, and able to utilise a wide range of mainly eudicots in their environment.
Monolepta Chevrolat, 1837, the most speciose galerucine taxon: redescription of the type species Monolepta bioculata (Fabricius, 1781) and key to related genera from (Chrysomelidae, Coleoptera)
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of some crucial taxa, and an identification key to all genera of afrotropical galerucines with elongated basi‐metatarsus are provided, and a comprehensive knowledge of the morphology of the type species, Monolepta bioculata is necessary.
Comparative morphology of the type-species of Isotes and Synbrotica(Coleoptera, Chrysomelidae, Galerucinae), with a new synonymy of species
TLDR
A new synonymy is established between Isotes borrei (Baly, 1889) and Isotes crucigera (Weise, 1916) syn.
Quo vadis biodiversity? Species richness following twenty years of taxonomic revisions on Afrotropical Galerucinae s. str. (Coleoptera, Chrysomelidae)
TLDR
A much lower diversity than previously predicted is suggested of the Afrotropical galerucine fauna based on hard data, a pattern that appears to be similar to that for other African galerucaine groups.
The collection of type specimens belonging to the superfamilies Scarabaeoidea, Buprestoidea, Byrrhoidea, Elateroidea, Cleroidea, Cucujoidea, Tenebrionoidea (except Tenebrionidae family), Chrysomeloidea and Curculionoidea (Coleoptera) hosted in the Natural Sciences Museum of Barcelona, Spain
TLDR
All the available information related to these type specimens are provided, giving the following information for each taxon, species and subspecies: the original and current taxonomic status, original citation of type materials, exact transcription of original labels, and preservation condition of specimens.
Contribution to a catalogue of types preserved in the collection of Zoologisches Forschungsmuseum Alexander Koenig (ZFMK): Coleoptera: 1. Checklist of taxa
The type specimens of Coleoptera housed in the Zoologisches Forschungsmuseum A. Koenig (ZFMK), Bonn, are listed. 2.143 names are recorded so far; of these, almost the half (1.078) are represented by
African Coleoptera Type Specimens collected by Thomas Wagner in the collection of the ZFMK
