Type species.

Chrysomela sericea   , designated by Latreille 1810: 432.

Diagnosis.

Anteriorly flat head, deeply inserted into the prothorax; eyes reniform; leading edge of prothorax laterally straight; denticles present on posterior margin of pronotum; thorax closely fitted to base of elytra (thus sometimes concealing denticles); anterior margin of intercoxal prosternal process uniformly concave or with medial flange; intercoxal width equal to or greater than width of coxal cavity; ventrite I of male without spines. Rectal apparatus bearing one ventral and two dorsal sclerites.

Distribution.

Worldwide, with over 1700 species ( Chamorro 2014b), with nine species cited for Argentina.

Remarks.

Although a complex subgeneric classification does exist for Palearctic species ( Schöller 2002), new world species including Argentinian, have not yet been assigned to subgenera.
