Chrysina gaellae  Ebrard and Soula [syn. by Soula 2011: 83].

Distribution.

GUATEMALA: Baja Verapáz, Huehuetenango, Zacapa ( Ebrard and Soula 2010, Monzón 2010, Thomas et al. 2016, Morón and Nogueira 2016). MEXICO: Chiapas ( Monzón 2010, Thomas et al. 2016, Morón and Nogueira 2016).

Types.

1 ♂ holotype of Chrysina gaellae  at DEPC (Soula and Ebrard 2010).

Remarks.

Possibly with ill intentions, the names Plusiotis hawksi  ( Monzón 2010 [Oct. 15]) and C. gaellae  ( Ebrard and Soula 2010 [Oct. 1]) were published the same month (see discussion in Soula 2011: 83). Based on the date of publication provided in Soula (2011), C. gaellae  is the valid name. Morón and Nogueira (2016) considered the valid name for this species to be Plusiotis hawksi  . It is possible that they overlooked the description of C. gaellae  ( Ebrard and Soula 2010) and/or the synonymy by Soula (2011). Because Morón and Nogueira (2016) do not revalidate the genus Plusiotis  , we use the currently valid genus Chrysina  .
