  author={Chris A. M. Reid and Max Beatson},
The chrysomelid genus Bohumiljania Monros, 1958, is revised, with nine species, seven new: B. aoupinie sp. nov., B. caledonica (Jolivet, 1957), B. lafoa sp. nov., B. humboldti Jolivet, Verma & Mille, 2005, B. mandjelia sp nov., B. tango sp. nov., B. xanthogramma sp. nov., B. xaracuu sp. nov., B. yuaga sp. nov. All species are described. The type species, B. caledonica, is shown to have been misidentified in recent literature. The original description of the other described species, B. humboldti…

Revision of the Australo-Papuan genus Macrolema Baly (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Spilopyrinae), with description of a new genus
The chrysomelid genus Macrolema Baly 1861 is revised, with 13 species described including five new and a first-instar larva is tentatively ascribed to MacRolema.
Kanakomyrtus (Myrtaceae): A New Endemic Genus from New Caledonia with Linear Stigma Lobes and Baccate Fruits
Kanakomyrtus (Myrtaceae) is a newly described genus endemic to New Caledonia that is distinct from other baccate genera of Myrtaceae by a combination of linear stylar lobes, densely glandular stamens and stigmas, and a short but densely hoary indumentum that is brownish when dry.
Spilopyrinae Chapuis: a new subfamily in the Chrysomelidae and its systematic placement (Coleoptera).
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.

On Phyletic Closeness Between South American and New Caledonian Spilopyrines (Chrysomelidae, Eumolpinae, Tribe Spilopyrini) 1
A possible phyletic closeness between the South American and the New Caledonian genera has been inferred and their food plants, palaeogeological history of the Southern Hemisphere, anatomical features of spilopyrines, and their developmental stages are considered.
Relationships within Myrtaceae sensu lato based on a matK phylogeny
An estimate of the phylogeny of the Myrtaceae sensu lato is produced with little basal resolution but a number of well-supported clades containing most of the genera, including the small genera Psiloxylon and Heteropyxis, which is more strongly supported.
