ANOMALINA Streubel, 1839

Note. According to Ramírez-Ponce and Morón (2009), the American species of Anomala Samouelle, 1819 (p. 191) as well as several species of American Callistethus Blanchard, 1851 (p. 198) belong in the genus Paranomala Casey, 1915 (p. 12). Because Ramírez-Ponce and Morón (2009) treat only two of the many dozens of South American species, we have decided not to follow the proposed nomenclatural changes until the South American fauna is better studied.
