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.

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").
