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 Bechyné, 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
