TitleDescription of a new genus and three new species of Malayan Galerucinae
JournalNotes from the Leyden Museum
AbstractBody elongate; eyes round, entire; penultimate joint of palpi thickened; antennae slender, filiform, second joint very short, fourth joint longer than the third; thorax squareshaped, disk transversely depressed at the posterior half; scutellum subpentagonal; elytra elongate, very finely and semiregularly punctured, with some obsolete longitudinal costae; their epipleurae very narrow, extending to the apex; legs rather robust, tibiae unarmed; the first posterior tarsal joint as long as the two following united; claws deeply bifid; prosternum invisible between the thighs; anterior coxal cavities open.
In its general shape and squareshaped thorax, the species upon which I am obliged to found the present genus, resembles Phyllobrotica to which it is without doubt closely allied but at once distinguished by the deeply bifid claws; the epipleurae also, although very narrow, are nevertheless distinct and the second joint of the antennae is shorter than is generally the rule in the allied genus.
