Remarks.

Casey (1915) did not designate a type species for the genus Plusiotina  . No authors addressed this until Machatschke (1972) subsequently designated Plusiotis woodi  Horn as the type of Plusiotina  . This type designation was invalid based on ICZN Article 67.2 that states "A nominal species is only eligible to be fixed as the type species of a nominal genus or subgenus if it is an originally included nominal species". Plusiotis woodi  Horn was not an originally included nominal species of Plusiotina  and was thus invalidly designated as the type species of Plusiotina  . Hawks (2001) corrected this by subsequently designating Plusiotina aeruginis  Casey (= Chrysina lecontei  [Horn, 1882]), an originally included nominal species of Plusiotina  , as the type species of Plusiotina  .
