Taxonomical, zoogeographical and phylogenetical relations among Indo-Pacific Dicerca Esch. and Poecilonota Esch. (Coleoptera: Buprestidae)

Abstract : The paper gives the taxonomical, zoogeographical and phylogenetical review of East Asian representatives of the genera Dicerca Esch. and Poecilonota Esch. 16 [incl. one new] subspecies in 12 species have been keyed and described, their distribution mapped and phylogenetic relationships tentatively reconstructed. Besides, several extralimital taxa have been remarked upon, and new name proposed for the preoccupied Tristria.
