A revision of the genus Acentroptera Guérin-Méneville, 1844 (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Cassidinae)

  • The species of the genus Acentroptera Guérin-Méneville, 1844 are revised. Thirteen species are treated as valid and are illustrated. A neotype is designated for A. tessellata Baly. Acentroptera maculata Pic from Brazil and A. rubronotata Pic from Brazil are treated as incertae sedis. Acentroptera bita n. sp. and A. lineata n. sp. both from Panama are described as new. A key to the 13 treated species is presented. Five species appear to be associated with bromeliads (Bromeliaceae).
