Agroiconota tristriata   (F., 1792)

(Tribe Cassidini   )

This species is known from Argentina, Brazil, French Guiana, Paraguay, Peru, Surinam, Trinidad and Tobago, and Venezuela (Borowiec and Świętojańska 2014). In Venezuela, it is known from the Caribbean provinces of Aragua and Guarico. This is a new province record, near Colombia.

Cephaloleia laeta Waterhouse, 1881   (Tribe Imatidiini   )

Two new country records, Costa Rica and Nicaragua, and the first host record, palm flowers ( Areceae   ), are provided. Cephaloleiini was synonymized with Imatidiini (Monrós and Viana 1947)   . The tribal name is recognized as Imatidiini Hope, 1840   (Bouchard et al. 2011) but is indicated as Imatidiniini in Staines (2012).

Cyrtonota banghaasi (Spaeth, 1902)   (Tribe Mesomphaliini   )

This medium-sized cassidine was previously known from one locality, Marcapata, Peru (Borowiec and Świętojańska 2014). I collected adults and juveniles at a second locality on Aequatorium sp. ( Asteraceae   : Senecioneae), a small upright shrub with large, hairy leaves, which is the first host record. The habitat is the disturbed roadside edge of a cloud forest.
