The genus Balyana Peringuey. Taxonomy and biological findings (Col. Chrysomelidae Hispinae)






Bulletin de la Societe Entomologique de France 92(3-4): 79-102

The genus Balyana Peringuey. Taxonomy and biological findings (Col. Chrysomelidae Hispinae)

Investigations on hispine chrysomelids damaging cocoa palms in Malagasy led to a revision of the genus Balyana there and in mainland Africa. Two new species and one new subgenus are described. They include B. mariaui sp. n., which is described from cocoa in Malagasy. Damage to cocoa by this species first appears in plantations 2-3 years old; other palms are also attacked.
