See note under Glyptina...
See note under Glyptina, Am. Beetles, vol II, pg. 661:
"Cerataltica Crotch 1873, based on Sphaemdemia insolita Melsheimer 1847, is still listed in synonymy with Aphthona; however, this genus is much closer to Glyptina and yet does not agree entirely. Cerataltica should probably stand as a separate genus (A. Konsantinov, pers. comm.)."
