Abstract : 

This paper presents at first a short survey about the subgenera of Chrysolina in Turkey and at second a synopsis on the subgenus Paradiachalcoidea in Palaearctic region. Chrysolina palmyrensis is recorded for the second time from Turkey after Gruev & Tomov (1979). Type information of all Palaearctic taxa of the subgenus Paradiachalcoidea is provided. Erroneous information of type locality for Ch. dohrnii dohrnii (Fairmaire, 1865) and Ch. palmyrensis palmyrensis Bechyn�, 1955 are amended as Syria, not Lebanon. The distribution area of all Palaearctic taxa of the subgenus Paradiachalcoidea is discussed. Consequently a key for the members of subgenus Paradiachalcoidea in Palaearctic region is also given
