Chrysina ohausi (Franz, 1928)


Chrysina ohausi (Franz, 1928) 

Plusiotis ohausi  Franz, 1928: 3-5 [original combination].

Chrysina ohausi  (Franz) [new combination by Hawks 2001: 8].


PANAMA ( Franz 1928, Ohaus 1934b, Blackwelder 1944, Machatschke 1972, Morón 1990, Curoe 2001, Ratcliffe 2002, Krajcik 2008).


Chrysina ohausi  (Franz) was known only from a single holotype female described from “Panama” and the holotype is apparently lost ( Morón 1990; Curoe 2001). It is possible that C. ohausi  (Franz) is a junior synonym of C. batesi  (Boucard) based on the description of C. ohausi  (Franz) and comparisons with other Chrysina  species from Panama ( Curoe 2001).
