Distribution.

MEXICO: Chihuahua, Durango, Sinaloa, Sonora (H. W. Bates 1888, Coolidge 1911, Casey 1915, Ohaus 1918, 1934b, Blackwelder 1939, 1944, Cazier 1951, Machatschke 1972, Morón 1990, Hardy 1991, Blackaller-Bages and Delgado 1994, Thomas et al. 2006, Morón and Nogueira 2016). USA: Arizona, New Mexico (Horn 1882, H. W. Bates 1888, Nonfried 1891, Casey 1915, Leng 1920, Blackwelder 1939, Ohaus 1918, 1934b, Cazier 1951, Gibson and Carrillo 1959, Hardy 1991, Morón 1990, 1991, Morón and Deloya 1991, Blackaller-Bages and Delgado 1994, Thomas et al. 2006, Krajcik 2008, Morón and Nogueira 2016).

Remarks.

Krajcik (2008) listed Plusiotis angustata  Machatschke (1972) in synonymy with Chrysina lecontei  (Horn). This is misleading as P. angustata  is not a validly described species but rather is a subsequent misspelling by Ohaus (1934b) of P. angusta  Casey. Morón and Nogueira (2016) considered the valid name for this species to be Plusiotis lecontei  . Lacking a clearly articulated and evidence-based rationale for this nomenclatural change, we use the name Chrysina lecontei  .
