Chrysina arellanoi Monzon, 2012 

Chrysina arellanoi  Monzón, 2012: 1-4 [original combination].


MEXICO: Oaxaca ( Monzón 2012, Thomas et al. 2013, Morón and Nogueira 2016).


1 ♂ holotype and 1 ♀ allotype at CNIN (UNAM) ( Monzón 2012).


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