Riley, E.G. 2020. A review of the Colaspis suilla species group, with description of three new species from Florida (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Eumolpinae). Insecta Mundi 0830: 1–21.

Abstract

The Colaspis suilla species group (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Eumolpinae) is defined relative to other species of the genus Colaspis Fabricius occurring in the United States.
The group is composed of five species, of which three from Florida are described as new species:

C. ansa Riley from the Florida Panhandle,
C. skelleyi Riley from Central Florida, and
C. thomasi Riley from the southern Lake Wales Ridge.

Colaspis suilla borealis Blake is reduced to a full synonym of C. suilla Fabricius, new synonymy.
Comparative remarks, habitus images, images of male and female genitalia, range maps, specimen data, and a key to species are presented.
