Melolonthinae   : Hopliini

Euchromoplia Medvedev, 1952   . Medvedev (1952: 235) erected the subgenus Euchromoplia   within the genus Hoplia   and designated Scarabaeus aureolus Pallas, 1781   (now Hoplia aureola   ) as the type species. Previously, Miyhara (1941: 2) erected the genus Victoria   with the type species Victoria maritomnium Miyhara, 1941   , by monotypy. Victoria Miyhara, 1941   is a junior homonym of Victoria Warren, 1897   ( Lepidoptera   ) and is therefore permanently invalid. Victoria maritomnium   is now considered to be a junior synonym of Hoplia communis Waterhouse, 1875   . Since Hoplia aureola   and H. communis   are considered to be in the same subgenus, the valid name for this subgenus is Euchromoplia   with Victoria   placed as an invalid synonym.

Hyperis Dejean, 1833   . Dejean (1833: 167) erected this genus for a single species: Hoplia eversmanni Faldermann, 1832   (the type species by monotypy). Hoplia eversmanni   is now a junior synonym of Hoplia paupera Krynicki, 1832   . The name Hyperis   has not been used as valid in over a century.

Medvedev (1952: 229) established the subgenus Xenoplia   and designated Hoplia paupera Krynicki, 1832   as the type species. Since the type species of Hyperis   and Xenoplia   are synonyms, these generic names are also synonyms. Therefore Hyperis   is a valid subgenus of Hoplia Illiger   with Xenoplia   placed as a junior synonym. Xenoplia Medvedev, 1952   is also a junior homonym of Xenoplia Warren, 1894   ( Lepidoptera   ).
