Distribution.

MEXICO: Colima, Distrito Federal, Hidalgo, Jalisco, México, Morelos, Puebla, Tlaxcala, Veracruz (H. W. Bates 1889, Nonfried 1892, Casey 1915, Ohaus 1918, 1934b, Blackwelder 1944, Machatschke 1972, Morón 1990, Blackaller-Bages and Delgado 1994, Morón et al. 1997, Hawks 2001, Thomas et al. 2006, Krajcik 2008, Morón and Márquez 2012, Márquez et al. 2013, Morón and Nogueira 2016).

Types.

1 ♀ holotype of Plusiotis orizabae  at BMNH (Fig. 12); 1 ♂ holotype of Pelidnota alticola  at BMNH.

Remarks.

Krajcik (2012, 2013) erroneously listed C. alticola  as a valid name. Morón and Nogueira (2016) considered the valid name for this species to be Plusiotis orizabae  . Lacking a clearly articulated and evidence-based rationale for this nomenclatural change, we use the name Chrysina orizabae  .
