Onota Chaudoir 1872 

Onota Chaudoir 1872: 165  . Type species: Onota bicolor Chaudoir 1872: 165  (designated by Bousquet & Larochelle 1993: 280). Type locality: BRAZIL, Santa Catarina.

Pseudolebia Basilewsky, 1942: 162  . This is not a synonym of Onota Chaudoir  as cited in Lorenz (1998: 153). An adult of Pseudolebia Basilewsky  was clearly illustrated in Basilewsky's contribution and the type species occurs in Madagascar. Only the species epithet, “ bicolor  ” of Pseudolebia bicolor Basilewsky  is something in common with the present species.

Diagnosis. (cf. Fig. 21View FIGURE 21). Head and pronotum smooth, not punctate, pale in color markedly contrasting with dark elytra. Antennomere 4 multisetiferous from basal third to apex, in addition to apical ring setae. Pronotum with lateral margin moderately reflexed from base to apex. Elytron at basal third depressed, surface uneven, without trace of tubercles, laterally at apical third without callus. Male endophallus with flagellum; flagellum apex not barbed.

Dispersal potential. The wings are fully developed, thus it is likely that these beetles are moderate to strong flyers.

Geographic distribution. A widespread Nearctic and Neotropical genus known from Florida, USA, throughout Central America, south to Brazil and Bolivia, and east to French Guiana.

Notes. Ten species are known to constitute this genus, most of which occur only in South America.
