Chrysina guaymi (Curoe, 2001)


Chrysina guaymi (Curoe, 2001) 

Plusiotis guaymi  Curoe, 2001: 46-49 [original combination].

Chrysina guaymi  (Curoe) [comb. n.].


PANAMA: Chiriquí ( Curoe 2001; Thomas et al. 2009).


1 ♂ holotype and 1 ♀ allotype at MIUP ( Curoe 2001); paratypes at STRI, MNCR, and MXAL ( Curoe 2001).


The genus Plusiotis  was synonymized with Chrysina  in 2001 ( Hawks 2001), the same year that Curoe described a new species from Panama ( Curoe 2001). In Hawks’ (2006) online "Checklist of Chrysina  species", Plusiotis guaymi  Curoe is listed as the new combination Chrysina guaymi  . Because the online checklist is not considered to be formally published for nomenclatural purposes, we formalize this new combination herein.
