Riley, E.G. 2020. A new species of Monoxia LeConte, 1865 (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Galerucinae: Galerucini) from the coast of southern Texas, USA. The Pan-Pacific Entomologist, 96(3): 189-196.

Abstract

A new species of leaf beetle, Monoxia andrewsi sp. nov. (Chrysomelidae: Galerucinae: Galerucini) from the coast of southern Texas, USA, is described and illustrated. The new species is compared to M. elegans Blake, 1939, the most-similar described species. It is associated with Atriplex (Amaranthaceae) growing adjacent to coastal saline habitats.
