Cetoniinae   : Cetoniini

Anthracophora Burmeister, 1842   . Burmeister (1842: 623) established a new genus

Anthracophora   and included Anthracophora rusticola Burmeister, 1842   and Cetonia atromaculata Fabricius, 1792   (currently a junior synonym of Cetonia crucifera Olivier, 1789   ) in it, without designating the type species. Arrow (1910: 109) designated Anthracophora rusticola   as the type species of Anthracophora   . This was a valid type species designation, therefore all subsequent type species designations listing Cetonia crucifera   as the type species of Anthracophora   are not valid.

Kraatz (1898: 406) established the genus Poecilophilites for Anthracophora rusticola   , which becomes the type species of Poecilophilites by monotypy. Having the same type species, Poecilophilites becomes a junior objective synonym of Anthracophora   .
