Abstract

Hansen, J.A., J.K. Moulton, W.E. Klingeman, J.B. Oliver, M.T. Windham , R.N. Trigiano, M.E. Reding. 2015. Molecular systematics of the Chrysobothris femorata species group (Coleoptera: Buprestidae). Annals of the Entomological Society of America 108(5): 950-963.

Abstract (part):

The Chrysobothris femorata (Olivier) species group has expanded to 12 recognized species. Many of these species are sympatric, share larval host plants, and are difficult to reliably separate morphologically. This study investigated species limits and relationships among the recognized species occurring within the southeastern United States.
