Species Trirhabda flavolimbata


Biosystematics of the genus Trirhabda LeConte of America north of Mexico (Chrysomelidae: Coleoptera)
By Steve Munroe Hogue
Ph.D. dissertation, University of Idaho, 212 pp., 1970
Apparently the most complete overall reference on Trirhabda to date...it's often repeatedly cited in later publications referring to the genus.

Hard to access in libraries, but can be ordered from UMI/ProQuest (for "UMI Publication Number", use "7027230").

Abstract

The study of biodiversity of Chrysomelidae in Mexico and its variation within ecological gradients has increased recently, although important areas in the country remain to be explored. We conducted a faunistic inventory and analyzed the elevational and temporal variation of leaf beetle communities in the Sierra de San Carlos, in the state of Tamaulipas, in northeastern Mexico.
