Chrysina oreicola  ( Morón) [new combination by Hawks 2001: 8].

Hawks (2001), in reference to species groups in the genus Chrysina  , listed C. oreicola  as "incertae sedis" (meaning that he was not able to assign the species to a species group). In this usage, Hawks (2001) was not suggesting that the validity of the species was in question.
