A catalog of the types of Chrysomelidae sensu lato (Insecta, Coleoptera, Polyphaga) deposited in the Museo Argentino de Ciencias Naturales, Buenos Aires

Axel Bachmann, Nora Cabrera


The type specimens (all current categories) of Chrysomelidae s.l. deposited in this Museum are listed; 125
names are recorded, 85 of them (68 percent) are represented here by name-bearing types (‘primary’ types), five of
them dubious. The family is taken in its broadest sense, including the Bruchinae, Hispinae (along with the former
Cassidinae), and other groups sometimes considered as separate families. The specific and subspecific names were
alphabetically filed, followed by the generic ones as they were spelled in the original publication, or the generic and
specific names in the case of subspecies and varieties. Later combinations and/or current binomina are mentioned
insofar as these are known to the authors. Two lists are added: 1. of specimens labelled as types of unavailable names,
chiefly those not found in the literature, and supposedly not published, and 2. of specimens labelled as types, but not
originally included as such, and published or not after the original description.
