Chrysina citlaltepetlamayatli (Blackaller-Bages & Delgado, 1994)


Chrysina citlaltepetlamayatli (Blackaller-Bages & Delgado, 1994) 

Plusiotis citlaltepetlamayatli  Blackaller-Bages & Delgado, 1994: 79-83 [original combination].

Chrysina citlaltepetlamayatli  (Blackaller-Bages and Delgado) [new combination by Hawks 2001: 7].


MEXICO: Querétaro, Veracruz ( Blackaller-Bages and Delgado 1994, Krajcik 2008, Thomas et al. 2007, Morón and Nogueira 2016).


1 ♂ holotype and 1 ♀ allotype at MXAL (declaration by authors of final deposition at CNIN [UNAM]) ( Blackaller-Bages and Delgado 1994); paratypes at CAS and MXAL ( Blackaller-Bages and Delgado 1994).


Morón and Nogueira (2016) considered the valid name for this species to be Plusiotis citlaltepetlamayatli  . Lacking a clearly articulated and evidence-based rationale for this nomenclatural change, we use the name Chrysina citlaltepetlamayatli  .
