Westcott, R.L. 1990. Notes on taxonomy, ecology and distribution for some species of Chrysobothris Eschscholtz (Coleoptera: Buprestidae) occurring in the United States (including Hawaii) and Canada. The Coleopterists Bulletin 44(3): 323–343.

Data are provided under 34 species in the genus Chrysobothris Eschscholtz; about one-third of these are treated in detail. The following new synonymy is proposed: Chrysobothris beeri Barr = C. caurina Horn; C. blanchardi Horn = C. rotundicollis Gory and Laporte; C. burkei Chamberlin = C. semisculpta LeConte; C. columbiana Barr = C. rotundicollis; C. grandis Chamberlin = C. monticola Fall; C. lata Kerremans = C. cribraria Mannerheim. Chrysobothris sinaloae Van Dyke is treated as a subspecies of C. peninsularis Schaeffer. New state/provincial records are given for 22 species, and new larval host records are provided for four species.
